Those two men are known as the “Bengals Number One Fans.” Benjamin, 81, and Gilbert Brown, 83, attend almost every Bengals softball game, rain or shine, despite Benjamin currently undergoing dialysis for kidney failure.

“Every time he gets out of dialysis, he wants to go to a softball game,” Benjamin’s daughter Una Paseda said.

Benjamin said he’s had a lifelong passion for all things sports.

His first sport he ever played was softball, but later...

The city has also taken on 19...

The shooter has been identified as Beau Wilson; an 18-year-old Farmington High School senior.

According to authorities, Wilson was staying in a home in the area. He reportedly opened fire on houses and cars in the area “at random.” A Ring doorbell camera caught the first round of...
