    Chandler Shepherd pitches no hitter

    1st game of the season Shep gave up no hits through 5 innings w 12 strikeouts. Tonight he no hits Paintsville with 11 more strikeouts. He's now thrown 11 innings of no hit baseball with 23 strikeouts. Not a bad way to climb back on the mound. Proud of him because he has worked his tail off and endured a lot for a teen.

    Nice article out of Lexington on Shep. I think he's around 39 strikeouts with 3 walks, 2 hits and no runs this season. 4-0 thus far. He also pitched in the Regional Championship his 8th grade year. State Championship his Fresh year. Broke the state's all time consecutive shutout innings streak his Frosh-Soph year and even after setting out a season is in the top 10 all time in strikouts and wins statewide. Quite the resume for a kid that has battled a lot!

    Feel like Shepherd's been in high school forever. From what I remember he was a good pitcher even 3 or 4 years ago.

    He pitched in the Regional Championship as an 8th grader+Frosh+Soph I think. 2 State Championships. Didn't get to pitch last year because of Tommy John. Started throwing left handed for the heck of it and was throwing in the 70's (that was in case he played the field). Instead they just used him as DH. He hit over 500 and broke Lawrence Co's single season HR record (there's been A LOT of good baseball players come through here). He hit another dinger tonight.
    Could have been a nice basketball player. Would have been one of the better football players in the state this year. His Frosh year he almost beat Belfry by himself. He averaged about 14 yds a carry against them. Going in for the go ahead score he hit on uneaven spot on the field and was hurt with the ball inside the 20 w about 3 minutes left in the game. Freak of a football player too. Never played anything but baseball after his Frosh year because everybody knew baseball was his ticket. He's been a joy to watch.

    According to an unnamed source, there were 11 pro scouts in attendance for last nights game. He didn't disappoint.
