  • All stars end season in Winchester and Harrodsburg

    The Harrison County Little League All Stars ended their seasons this past week as both the 9-year-olds’ team and the 11-year-olds’ team, with a few 10 year olds, lost.

    The 9-year-olds’ team played in Winchester facing teams of 10-year-olds and lost three of four games. They started with a 10-6 loss on Monday to Richmond, but followed with a 10-9 win over Mercer County on Wednesday. 

    They lost a heart breaker on Thursday to Lexington Eastern National by a 10-8 count after their defense had an inning-long collapse.

  • Akin promises a hard-working team

  • ‘Will we ever truly learn?’

    This morning I noticed a teeny frog hopping around my bathroom.

    My first thought — I hope my husband doesn’t see it because he’ll give me that I-told-you-to-keep-the-door-shut look.

    My second thought, however — You poor, dumb frog, so teeny. You’re probably just a baby and I don’t have any froggy food in my house and if you don’t get accidentally stepped on, you’ll surely die from hunger unless you find your way back outside.

  • Baseball is wrapping up for the summer

    Not counting the high school summer league schedule, baseball is wrapping up in Cynthiana. 

    The Little League, coach pitch and tee ball seasons are in the tournament stage so this week should wrap that up barring rain outs. 

    I want to make a few more observations before going on to other sports. I have paid more attention this year to the three above mentioned leagues than I have in many years.
