Basketball poised to reclaim popular status with the public

Under the guidance of president Charlie "Softly" Robins, the Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF) is charting a proactive, innovative program that could very well enable the sport to reclaim the once great popularity it had with the Bahamian public.
There was a time during the late 1960s and 1970s when "BABA" as the then Bahamas Amateur Basketball Association was known, topped the popularity sports ladder in this country. The noted disciplinarian, Vince Ferguson, was the long-standing president and he drove the organization to great heights.
Ferguson and his executive colleagues were forward thinkers and they hit a milestone with an office base at the entrance to the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre. Exciting competition was synonymous with BABA. The glorious era was sparked by the marquee match-ups between the fabled teams, Kentucky Colonels that evolved out of the St. Bernard's Club and the ultimate mentor Father Marcian Peters; and the Cougars, started by a group of young Priory Grounds residents, Fred "Papa" Smith and company.
It was a special period in the sports history of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The man of the time who steered the national basketball program was Ferguson, despite his controversial side. It was a feel good time in Bahamian sports.
In recent decades, the luster faded from the national basketball program and league play slipped from its high popularity pedestal. Now, with Robins and Secretary Clifford Rahming leading the way, the basketball program is being rebranded. An event to honor the "40 greatest" basketball icons could very well launch a new era of basketball in the country.
When Robins first put his name forward for consideration as president of basketball several years ago, it was an encouraging sign for the sport. Quite frankly however, Robins was never able to catapult the program. The blast-off that was expected during his first term never came.
Now though, President Robins is being innovative. The idea, an event of substance, will push his organization into the spotlight. Robins, Rahming and the rest of the executives appear to be making a strong effort to devise a thorough marketing plan for the federation. The proposed event will no doubt spark new interest among those presently involved in basketball. It will succeed also in reconnecting fraternity members of the past, their family and supporters to basketball in the present era.
Robins was arguably the most exciting basketball player in Bahamian history. He rocked gyms over and over and bonded with all spectators, (whether they favored his team or not), like few others. Hopefully, he is now minded to bring that same on-court pizzazz to his administrative responsibilities. If he does, Robins will certainly emulate the job done by Ferguson and perhaps go beyond.
Best wishes and congratulations Softly! Congratulations to the BBF!

Batelco Radars back In spotlight with noble gestures to stalwarts

I remember quite well, the period during the 1960s when the Batelco Radars was one of the best softball teams in the country. It was a pivotal era. The ethnic gap in the game of softball was about to be totally bridged. Traditional softball competition at Garfunkel Field, that saw the participation of few black players, was transforming into league play at the new John F. Kennedy Drive Park.
Prior to that change, the Southern Recreation Grounds (now Cannon William Thompson Park) was where a large number of black players performed. On Sundays, the Southern Recreation Grounds (SRG) was one of the main venues of activities for black athletes.
At the same time, many of them were playing cricket or soccer at Clifford Park, Windsor Park or St. George's Park. The SRG enjoyed that kind of popularity and the Radars were the softball darlings of the time. The top players evolved as stars, household names. When visiting the SRG, most often, fans watched Brian "Boldie" Gibson, the last of the great underhand delivery specialists.
He was the star pitcher of the Radars. Then, there was Russell Franks who was an avid athlete and a bit of a socialite. He was one of the original Radars. The peers of Gibson and Franks included Anthony "Boots" Weech, Keith "Muggins" Archer and Audley "Congo" Williams, who also thinks of himself as one of the better whist players in the country. Well, the jury remains out on that one.
They were a part of the catalyst group that contributed to etching the name Batelco Radars into Bahamian softball history.
A few years behind the aforementioned stalwarts but significant, nevertheless, to the tradition of the Radars, was Charles "Chuck" Mackey. The 1960s and 1970s were special decades in the development of softball in the country. The Radars, through the outreach connections of it players, had much to do with the expansion of softball into commercial and recreational play.
These days, Williams is still as boastful as ever, Weech remains quiet but profound and Muggins forever the supreme unionist, all of them still in love with the game of softball. Boldie gave us a scare a while ago. He was fading rapidly, but through the power of the Almighty, he is back, seemingly as vibrant as ever.
The same can't be said for Franks and Mackey. They are both facing challenges and are greatly incapacitated in comparison to the active individuals we once knew.
It was thus a fitting gesture, when the Radars decided to pay tribute to their colleagues. Weech first mentioned the plan to me and I thought it a great idea. This past weekend a social bash was held at the home of Archer, in Imperial Park, and it was a great reunion of Radars, honoring two of their very own.
This is a special moment in time in Bahamian sports history.
More and more, organizations are recognizing the importance of connecting the generations by bringing back into the spotlight those who made a positive sports difference. Now, a little bit more is known about Franks and Mackey.
Best wishes to them!

Being Pindling's heir

Sir Lynden Pindling is the greatest politician in modern Bahamian history. He took charge of our "first" political party in the 1950s and led it to victory in 1967. He then held power for 25 years. During that time, the Pindling-led government built many of the institutions of government we now take for granted.
Hubert Ingraham and Perry Christie were "pupils" of Sir Lynden. Both served as Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) members of Parliament and Cabinet ministers. They were fired together in 1984 from Sir Lynden's Cabinet. Ingraham and Christie survived as independents in 1987 and both eventually became prime minister -- Ingraham three times and Christie once.
This election campaign has been a battle. Ingraham and Christie, the PLP and Free National Movement (FNM), have given every effort to win. Ingraham and the FNM even used an excerpt of Sir Lynden's farewell address in the House of Assembly in 1997 to further their cause. In it Sir Lynden described Ingraham as "the most illustrious protégé of mine thus far".
Sir Lynden's widow, Dame Marguerite Pindling, and the PLP have taken issue with this.
"I will never forget -- and I know Sir Lynden never forgot -- how mean Mr. Ingraham was to us back then when we were at our lowest point," said Dame Marguerite at a PLP rally Friday night at Clifford Park referring to the period after the 1992 general election when the FNM defeated the PLP.
"It was so cruel and so unnecessary. Mr. Ingraham had already won, so why was it necessary to be so ungracious and so unkind? Sir Lynden was very deeply hurt by that. He really couldn't understand it. Neither could I."
Dame Marguerite went on further to say that Sir Lynden passed the torch on to Christie, referring to the current PLP leader as his rightful heir.
Sir Lynden was so dominant and successful a politician that success is what will earn his protégés the title of heir. Just being handed the leadership of the PLP is not enough to qualify anyone to be heir to our longest serving prime minister.
Thus far Ingraham has won three general elections. Christie has only won one. If Ingraham wins the 2012 general election, without question, he is Sir Lynden's heir. By doing so for the forth time and in the wake of the Great Recession, a roadwork debacle and a crime problem, Ingraham would demonstrate that he has made a similar deep connection to the electorate as Sir Lynden -- that connection being that Bahamians think these leaders are more worthy than any of their contemporaries for an entire generation.
For Christie to be in the discussion regarding who is Sir Lynden's heir, he has to win this election. With all the challenges the FNM has faced this term, the PLP has all the ammunition it needs to win. If it does not, it is likely because not enough Bahamian people think Christie is the right man to run the country.

Big basketball press conference today To Launch '40 Greatest'

Today, the launch of the Bahamas Basketball Federation's '40 Greatest' celebration is to take place at Floyd's on East Street South, just across from the C.V. Bethel High School. A starting time of 9 a.m. for a breakfast press conference was scheduled.
With the planning already structured, BBF Secretary General Clifford Rahming informed "the time had come to get all of the factors out there for the public to digest".
"There is a lot involved with this event," said Rahming.
"Quite frankly it has mushroomed beyond our expectations. There are now other dimensions to the '40 Greatest' that will stand up on their own and we need to get it all out there so that public will be able to take it all in and become partners with us actually, as we set out to achieve a milestone in Bahamian life, not just in sports."
According to Rahming, the definite time lines for nomination, the selection process and other highlight events connected to the '40 Greatest' will be detailed to members of the media.
The Ministry of Tourism will be playing a leading role. Rahming informed that BBF President Charlie 'Softly' Robins was approached by Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe, and support was pledged.
This is typical of Wilchcombe. He has always been very close to sports and he well understands the value of the various disciplines, in molding quality citizens. I've seen him at events and it is clear that the minister grasps the sports tourism concept like few others.
The BBF '40 Greatest' will be a landmark accomplishment. An added aspect will be the decision to officially name the event in memory of one of the greatest, the late Cecil Rose. Perhaps this is an element that should be kept as a part of the template for the future. It seems fitting that each year, the event be held in honor of one of the great ones.
By having the event "in memory of Rose" without having planned as much, the BBF has brought his friends and associates in Houston into the picture. Rose was revered in Houston, the city that became his second home. Connecting with Houston is a sports tourism plus.
I understand a Bahamian tourism office is soon to be opened in Houston. Thus, the BBF could have some assistance in driving its '40 Greatest' event. Something similar could happen in Florida, where there is a sizeable concentration of former star players and their friends and families.
Indeed the '40 Greatest' has great potential.
Floyd's, a restaurant/lounge facility, with quite a pleasant environment, has been designated the secretariat for the '40 Greatest' affair. From there, the event will be anchored and managed.
"We thought to go with a place that is comfortable, kind of centrally located and a haven for sports enthusiasts. We have come to a mutually sound agreement with management and Floyd's will be our secretariat base going forward," Rahming divulged.
BBF President Robins is expected to be on hand at the press conference, along with Rahming and other elected officers.
