  • Bears pick up 2 wins

     

    Spencer County’s Weston Pittman takes a big hack but pulled the ball foul in a recent game for the Bears. The boys finished their regular season last week on a positive note with two wins.

The Bears were to open postseason play on Monday against 8th Region favorite Collins at Anderson County. The Bears finished the regular season with a 9-20 record.

    Spencer County’s Kendall Horn crosses the plate for a run in a recent home game for the Lady Bears. The girls wrapped up their regular season with a 10-4 victory over Bardstown on Friday.

They are scheduled to open postseason play on Wednesday against Anderson County at Collins, beginning at 6 p.m.

    Post Kentucky Derby - lean news time in the Toy Department, right? Maybe.
    First, a stop in the nut ball and section.
    Assaulted within an inch of his sanity by media’s self-righteous, Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling forfeited all hope of being a media martyr last week. How? Opened his mouth. Stepped into the confessional with, of all people, CNN’s self-anointed pope, Anderson Cooper.
    California Chrome is this close to the Triple Crown. How close? One nasal strip.

    Last week I discussed a few of the multi-sport athletes, most of whom excelled at one sport while struggling with a second. That got me pondering an interesting made-for-TV scenario that would pit professional athletes of one sport into an event where they would try their hands at the other major sports. I’d call it the Play In My Shoes League.

  • Lady Bears drop to 8-15 on season

     

    Spencer County infielder Shelbie Goodwin scoops up a ball and makes the throw to first during a recent contest for the Lady Bears. The girls are 8-15 on the season and dropped two of three games last week. They opened the week with a 9-6 victory at North Bullitt, but then fell 9-4 at Western Hills and 15-7 at home to Henry County. The girls were to be back on the diamond Tuesday to host Shelby County.

  • COLUMN: Multiple sports stars...

    Tracy McGrady is an imposing image on the pitcher’s mound. At 6-foot-8 and a fastball clocked in the 90s, the young baseball players he faces in an independent minor league might be forgiven if they stand back in the box and watch a pitch or two before getter the courage to take a swing.

    Peculiar, the times we live in.
    The sports landscape is a screwball swirl of craziness, and the NBA is still going with a draft still a month away.
    Observations ...
    • NFL Draft. A month ago Johnny Manziel warned the Texans they’d be sorry if they didn’t draft him. A week ago ex-Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, (three national title rings in his pocket), and projected to be picked 16 to 35th, heard his name called at 164. Why the free fall? McCarron was said to be “too cocky.”

  • Bears losing streak reaches 6...

     

    Spencer County’s Jacob Cole makes contact with a pitch during a recent home game. The Bears have now lost six games in a row, but their last three decisions have been one-run affairs. Last Wednesday, the Bears dropped a tough 5-4 loss at Shelby County. On Friday, they traveled to Elizabethtown and fell 9-8 to John Hardin. The boys were to be back in action on Monday at home against Washington County, on Tuesday at home against Nelson and on Thursday at Seneca. They’ll have a Saturday home game against Doss at noon.
