     Heading into this week’s 10-year-old Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional All-Star tournament at the Ward Correll Sports Complex in Somerset, LaRue County coach Todd Morris is pretty confident in his team’s pitching and defense.

    It’s the offense that’s still developing for LaRue County, which didn’t have a hit through the first four innings in its 4-2 win over the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission in the West Kentucky State Tournament championship last week.

  • Press Whelan reflects on...

    Nearly 60 years ago, the track coach at St. Joseph Prep School in Bardstown needed a miler. He spotted a scrawny country boy sitting in one of his classes by the name of Press Whelan, and urged the New Haven youngster to join the team.

    Luckily for the running community, Whelan agreed.

    The LaRue County 10-year-old All-Stars didn’t have a hit through four innings Saturday but when they did appear, it was just in time to keep their season alive.

    LaRue exploded for four hits and four runs – all in the bottom of the fifth inning – to knock off the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission All-Stars, 4-2, to win the West Kentucky Cal Ripken State championship.
