  • First person: James Wright&...

    Though  there were several heroic moments in the regional baseball games, James Wright certainly had more than his share.


    Wright, a left-handed-hitting senior, stroked a 2-run, walk-off single to defeat North Oldham, then started the first comeback against Anderson County with a home run in the bottom of the sixth. In the 11th inning, it was Wright who came in to pitch and get the final two outs (both batters grounded out). He hadn’t pitched but a couple innings all season.
