    Shelbyville Post 37 came away with one win in the Western Kentucky University Tournament, but according to coach Jim Wiley, playing the best baseball of the year.

    “We were in every game and had a chance to win the game but couldn’t stop their hitters,” Wiley said. “They were all good teams. I feel like we’re a better team than we were a week ago by playing that competition.”
