  • Leaving a legacy

    For the last 30-plus years “Hoss” has been the boss for the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team.

    This year, though, Jim “Hoss” Wiley is hanging up his spikes after dedicating more than a third of his life to the city’s Legion program, and more than half his life to baseball in the county.

  • Veteran Rockets lack experience

    New Shelby County boys’ golf coach Casey Page is looking for results in his first season at the helm of the program.

    “I’m expecting a positive record at the end of the year, and I’m expecting at least one player to make it past region this year,” he said.

    The Rockets graduated three of their five starters – Issac Martin, Jimmy Hulce and Cory Chance – from last year’s Region 6 Tournament, in which they finished 10th.
