  • Post 37 rolls to tourney title

    Even though his team won its first three games in the 34th annual Shelbyville American Legion Invitational baseball tournament, long-time Post 37 Manager Jim Wiley felt like his squad hadn’t hit the ball very well.

    That changed Sunday.

    Shelbyville slugged 14 hits – 10 for extra bases – in a 19-2 pummeling of Paducah Post 31 in the final of the four-team tournament on Bobby Stratton Field at Clear Creek Park.

  • Miller made his mark his senior...

    For much of his first three years of high school athletics at Collins, Paul Miller was the blond-haired, blue-eyed poster boy for patience, persistence, perseverance, perspiration and preparation.
    However, only one word is needed to describe Miller’s recently completed senior year – winner.
    As a three-sport starter, in boys’ soccer, basketball and baseball, all he did was win, win, win.

  • Post 37 rolls in season-opener

    It took the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team until the district tournament to get above the .500 mark last year.
    It took it one game to do so this year.

    Shelbyville, which lost its first three games last year on its way to a 12-15 finish, took a 2-0 lead in the third inning before Post 254 rallied to tie it in the fifth frame. Post 37 retook the lead with one run in the bottom of the seventh, then tacked on two more in the eighth to earn the victory.
