  • Boosters president thanks fans for support of baseball team

    To the editor:

    The Harrison County Breds Boosters, and the team, would like to thank all the Cynthiana, Harrison County, and surrounding businesses and citizens for the support during his past year. Without this continued financial support and strong fan base the success our team enjoys could not be a reality. We sincerely appreciate all levels of support and continue to strive to make baseball “a matter of pride” in these young men’s lives, hoping that pride spills into all areas of their lives.
