  • Former major leaguer sees his...

    There’s a twinkle in Jack Littrell’s eyes when he talks about his days as a professional baseball player. From the time he signed on with the Boston Red Sox in 1948 to his final 1957 season with the Chicago Cubs, Jack reflects upon great plays, the crack of the bat and his lifelong love of the game.

     With help from Hosparus, this Spencer County resident enjoys watching the game on lazy spring afternoons in the comfort of his daughter’s Taylorsville home.

  • Rockets give Bears a rough ride

    The Spencer County Bears put together some good games over the course of the season, but their last outing of the year was far from a gem on the diamond as they struggled in a 19-3 rout at the hands of Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament in Shelbyville last Tuesday night.

    Dropped balls, errant throws, and numerous walks and hit batters allowed the Rockets to keep runners on the base paths all night long as they raced out to an early lead and never were really threatened by Spencer County .

    Grizzly baseball added another notch on their championship belt this season by defeating St. Dominic Middle School 10-7 in the 2009 MKAC Championship game last Tuesday.

  • Faces of Kentucky basketball

    Faces. Past and future.

    As Jerry West’s silhouette is emblem for the NBA, if Kentucky basketball’s glorious past had a face (and idyllic nickname), both would belong to Raymond ‘Corky’ Withrow.

    At 75, Withrow will be inducted into the KHSAA Hall of Fame next spring. Good thing coming to a deserving man very late. A man who, with his athletic skills and personality, brought much credit to his home state.
