    The 1993 state champion Harrison County High School baseball team will be honored on Friday night during the first game of the Whitaker Bank-KHSAA State Baseball Championship semi-final game, at Whitaker Bank Park in Lexington.
    That championship was the first of three state titles earned by coach Mac Whitaker and the Thorobreds in the 1990s. The Breds also won titles in 1997 and 1998. They added a fourth state championship during the 2010 season.

    I spent part of Monday afternoon with Barry Zumwalt, director of Harrison County/Cynthiana Parks and Recreation.  I went to get an update on the spring/summer baseball and softball and stayed to listen to some fantastic stories. 
    Barry wasn’t complaining, in fact, I started the train rolling by asking a question about something I had heard that went on in the Little League a time ago.
