The Shelby County Cal Ripken 10-year-old all-star baseball team will try to carry its recent momentum into the State Tournament.
Fresh off victories in a tournament in Lawrenceburg, then the District 2 Tournament last week, the Shelby County squad begins play in the 10-team East Kentucky State Tournament on Monday. Shelby will play District 6 champ Jackson County at 6 p.m. at Veterans Park in Lexington.
The 10-year-old team boasts both hitting and pitching.
“We have a variety of everything,” Coach Mike Birchfield said.
