  • Bearcats still playing for May

    All season long, Anderson County baseball coach L.W. Barnes has been saying his team is “playing for May.”

    It means that Barnes felt his team, faced with a major rebuilding job against a rugged schedule could improve enough to be a factor in the 30th District and perhaps the Eighth Region by tournament time, which begins May 23.

    If last week is any indication, the Bearcats, despite a 3-18 record, might be living up to that plan.

  • Four inducted into Anderson Lady Cat Softball Hall of Fame

    Four local softball greats have been inducted as the first class of the Anderson County Softball Hall of Fame.

    Selected to the class were Nikki Lay, Colleen Fitzpatrick Fyffe, Courtney Turpin, and Corrin Robinson. The four were honored at various home softball games this year.

    The inductees were selected by a committee of past and present players and coaches.

    Each of the four received a “Lady Cat Legend” crystal and each will have her picture hanging in the Anderson softball facility.

    From staff reports

    Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory will unveil a lifelike sculpture of Jackie Robinson on Thursday, May 12 at 11 a.m. according to a news release.
