  1. Saw it referenced on Twitter today that Daviess County was looking for their first state title in softball. I guess technically that is correct since fastpitch didn't start until the mid-90s, but Daviess County also beat Bullitt East in 1992 for the state softball championship. It was slowpitch at the time, which was what the KHSAA sponsored because there was no fastpitch.
  2. Just now logging on to my personal computer. Everything looks great. The color is a huge plus. Font looks a little different (better) as well. Great upgrade!
  3. Congratulations to Trinity. Well deserved title, they were the best team in Kentucky this year. Trinity was also, by almost any measure, the best program in the state of Kentucky who had not yet won a state baseball championship. They're always good and had twice lost in the finals (Owensboro in 1983; Covington Catholic in 2002) so seeing them get over the hump is great for their fans. My five best programs without a state championship now looks something like this: Hazard - 14 region titles, 1 state runner-up McCracken County - 7 region titles, 2 state runners-up Apollo
  4. Not sure I’ve seen someone as mad as Joey Votto was in a long time. Have to think the home plate umpire said something as he walked away. Votto’d original beef seemed to be with the third base umpire.
  5. Nutrition and training are so much better than in the past. The amount of talented players is huge. If you aren’t taking care of yourself you’ll get passed by other competitors.
  6. Amen. I was reluctant to say anything because I’m absolutely second guessing. And I agree, hope he gets to hit at UK. He’s an almost impossible out.
  7. Tough call. I think I’d have kept him in as long as I was ahead. It was clear Morse didn’t want to use Baxter until tomorrow and was trying to leg out a victory. Ultimately he had to go to him, but it was too late. I saw Howe against Beechwood and McCracken, two outstanding teams. I wasn’t wowed either time. Not sure if he was tired this late in the season but fastball didn’t have its normal pop and he struggled to get outs. Hopefully with some rest he’ll be ready to go at UK.
  8. Only game I've seen Fulton City playing this season. Curious if they might be playing Ballard Memorial at some point? That's traditionally been played. Fulton County has already released a full schedule and Fulton City wasn't on it.
  9. It has actually happened two other times, but it hadn't happened since the late-1970s. I believe Eric Chumbler on twitter had researched as far back as the KHSAA scoreboard site would allow.
  10. Made a great hire a few years ago with Mike Sizemore. Clay County has since been ascendant while Bracken County has fallen after he left.
  11. It sure seems difficult for a lot of schools to get a correct schedule posted. Its unbelievable how many put out posters that don't match what they put on the KHSAA website.
  12. I’m all in on the chicken. Don’t like ribs. Can we all still be friends?!
  13. I can't remember which Beechwood player hit it, maybe in the sixth inning. The shot to third that Baxter jumped in the air to catch might have been the difference in a win and loss. That ball was smoked and Baxter just made a terrific play.
  14. They’ve shown themselves to be competitive against the big schools at state as well. I’m sure Trinity or DeSales would be the favorite but I suspect Hazard keeps it close and even a win wouldn’t surprise.
  15. Nice win for Danville. Not sure either team played its best game. Both teams seemed nervous early and then the heat seemed to zap some energy as well.
  16. Forever. I don’t remember them playing anywhere else. This is just a really good hitting team.
  17. The notion of a separate dugout seems like nothing but a mere fantasy!
  18. Very similar jersey design to the Atlanta Braves from that time period. Think Hank Aaron breaking the home run record. Numbers exactly the same.
  19. Emma Lawrence of Garrard County won the long jump and set a Class AA state record with a jump of 19’.
  20. For those of an older age who may remember, Danville is coached by Paul Morse. Morse was a three sport star at Danville in the late-80s then played baseball at UK. He spent several years in minor league baseball, making it to Triple-A. He’s been the coach at Danville for some time now and recently won his 500th game.
  21. Danville’s park is kinda small but these are excellent players. Howe is going to UK, Wood to Louisville, Baxter to Marshall, and Barnes is heavily recruited (may have committed but not sure). That said, I think Beechwood can play with them. It probably favors the Tigers to keep it low scoring, like against CovCath.
  22. Garrard County has seven participants (likely a school record) and two kids that are among the favorites in three events. I’m headed up this morning. I’ve never been to a track meet of any kind so this is pretty exciting!
