PAYSON, Ill. -- A 16-year-old male is being held in the Adams County Youth Home after being charged with aggravated domestic battery.

The father was taken to Blessing Hospital by Adams County Ambulance. No details were released concerning injuries.

Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
