Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
I received a lengthy, thoughtful e-mail today from a source close to the Franklin Little League story who sides with the Little League. However, in the long e-mail, this individual tells me Devin Baehr was nominated for All-Star consideration. The e-mailer then writes, “I can not begin to guess as to why Devin did not receive a single vote.”
Not a single vote? You can’t tell me there’s nothing fishy about this.
In my original blog, I wrote that the Rockies were 0-4 since Devin Baehr left the team. They are actually 1-3 since Devin's departure and I apologize for the error.
Devin's father denies he used profanity in a discussion with Franklin LIttle League officials and denies he refused to shake hands with one of them, as were the allegations made by a Franklin Little League Board member on my blog. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of he said/he said that has emerged during this story.
I have also received a handful of e-mails suggesting that I have a personal relationship with the Baehr’s. I’ve never met them, seen them, or heard of them until recently. They are not my neighbors. The only contact I’ve had with father and son is one brief phone conversation.
