  • Shelby rebounds with win

    The Shelby County Babe Ruth 13-year-old all-star baseball team bounced back from its first round loss in the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament.

    Shelby County, which lost its opening game, 15-3, to South Lexington, beat Campbellsville, 12-5, Tuesday night in a losers’ bracket game at Shillito Park in Lexington.

    Shelby met Somerset on Thursday night in an elimination game.

  • Legion strikes down Danville

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball coach Jim Wiley is hoping his team caught lightning in a bottle Wednesday night.

    Post 37 downed Danville, 5-2, in 4½ innings in a game that was called in the bottom of the fifth inning because of lightning at Clear Creek Park in the team’s penultimate game of the regular season.

    It’s been a big week for Candice Wiley.

  • After 29 days, 12 innings, Floyd...

    It took almost a month, but a champion was finally crowned in the 32nd annual Shelbyville American Legion Invitational baseball tournament.

    Floyds Knobs (Ind.) outlasted Shelbyville American Legion Post 37, 7-6, in 12 innings in the final – a game that was rained out June 17, suspended by rain Saturday and finished up Monday night at Clear Creek Park.

    Floyds Knobs Post 42 took home the trophy by plating two runs in the top of the 12th and holding Post 37 to only one in the bottom of the inning.

  • Scott pitcher too perfect to...

    A rematch against South Lexington in the final of the 2012 East Kentucky Cal Ripken 11-year-old State Tournament would’ve been a perfect ending for the Shelby County all-star baseball team.

    However Scott County’s Aram Kumar had other ideas.

    Kumar pitched a perfect game to beat Shelby County, 7-0, Sunday in the losers’ bracket final at Suffoletta Park in Georgetown.

  • 8-year-olds finish 2nd in...

    The Shelby County 8-year-old machine-pitch all-star baseball team finished second in the 2012 state tournament this past weekend. 

    Shelby County won its first two games of the tournament, lost its third, then won its fourth before falling to Kenton County, 7-6, in the state championship game in Nicholasville.

    Shelby beat Louisa, 2-1, in seven innings Saturday morning before topping Big Sandy, 11-5, later in the day. Kenton County beat Shelby, 7-2, Sunday before Shelby bounced back to beat Martin County, 10-9, thanks to a 7-run sixth inning.

  • Shelby cruises into title game

    Shelby County 10-year-old Cal Ripken All-Stars Coach Mike Stoner said he had faith in Blake Palmer.

    Though his starting pitcher had cruised through the first four innings of the winners’ bracket final of the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament on Monday night at Clear Creek Park, he ran into trouble in the fifth.

    But as Shelby County’s 9-2 lead was whittled to two runs, Stoner never wavered in leaving Palmer on the mound.

    “I was going to run with him,” he said.
