  • Balanced team advances

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 11-year-old all-star baseball team’s biggest strength may be its balance.

    “What we have is a lot of players who can play a lot of different positions,” Coach Jeff Crisp said. “We have a really versatile team…the flexibility of the team is what makes them so good.”

  • Tune-up game would have helped

    There was one thing Shelby County Babe Ruth 13-Year-Old All-Star Coach Yogi Peyton would’ve liked his team to have had before it began play in the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament on Thursday night – a game.

  • Post 37 walks away with 2...

    It has been a bounce-back and a comeback week for the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team.

  • Strong pitching, powerful...

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 9-year-old all-star baseball team ran roughshod over its competition in the District 2 Tournament.

    It will look to carry that momentum over in the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament this week.

  • Shelbyville rebounds in big way

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 10-year-old all-star baseball team showed that sometimes it’s good to be forgetful.

    The squad shook off an 18-0 loss to Scott County on Friday night by turning around some 12 hours later and routing the same team, 18-2, in Saturday morning’s District 2 Tournament final at Clear Creek Park.

  • Shelbyville routed twice in...

  • Inspired Sharks ready to swim

    Fresh off the United States Olympic swimming trials and with the London Games just 16 days away, there has been a lot of national interest in the sport, especially with the Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte rivalry.

    However there has been even more relevance locally as Louisville’s Clark Burkle and Western Kentucky University alum Claire Donahue made the men’s and women’s U.S. swim teams respectively.

  • This bird’s future is hampered...

    I had not seen or heard a Dickcissel in Shelby County since the early 1980s until the late spring of 2010. I was just north of Shelbyville on Ben Zaring's farm on the east side of Smithfield Road, searching for another species of bird, when I heard the telltale song that always gives this bird's location away.

    The Dickcissel sings out his name with his song of "dick-dick-cissel" that is repeated over and over again.

  • Clifton’s hit presents 2nd...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team ended its Fourth of July game with a bang.

    Nate Clifton’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning helped cap off a comeback and give Shelbyville a 9-8 victory over Somerset at Clear Creek Park on Wednesday afternoon.
