  • Major League baseball is back

    Before I get into my thoughts for the upcoming Major League Baseball season, I have two opening comments. First is congratulations to Gary Philpott for being selected to the Kentucky Prep Softball Hall of Fame.  
    Philpott will be inducted in mid-June during the 22nd annual East-West All Star weekend. Philpott is a pitching guru and has helped many players both in Harrison County and in other parts of central Kentucky.  
    He is among six people who will be inducted on this weekend, including Bourbon County’s Tony Sosbe.

    FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Crews from the fisheries division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will remove largemouth bass from Beaver Lake in Anderson County in the coming weeks to alleviate overcrowding and improve growth rates of fish.

    Anglers eager to catch the white bass spawning run along a section of Salt River above Taylorsville Lake can get there easier now that some road access has re-opened in the area.
    The gated accesses at Palmer Road and Old River Road off Ky. 44 at Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will remain open from daylight until dark into summer, except for closures during the youth-only and general spring turkey seasons.

    Researchers will experiment with a riverbed bubbler and sound system as part of the ongoing effort to slow the spread of Asian carp throughout the Mississippi River basin.
    European technology originally designed to steer migrating salmon back into main river channels will be tested below Barkley Dam in western Kentucky as an environmentally friendly way to block passage of Asian carp upstream.

    Dillon Arnold and Andrew Day combined for a five-hitter and the Harrison County defense played error-free ball as the Thorobreds shutout the Walton Verona Bearcats Monday in Walton.  
    Senior outfielder Russ Judy picked up three of the Thorobreds seven hits as he had a perfect three for three at the plate.
    Harrison County scored both runs in the top of the first inning when Bearcat starter Braxton Foley gave up three walks and a base hit.
