When the high school baseball season opened back in March, few thought the Eighth Region championship game would shape up as it has.
Everyone should have known better.
Anderson County vs. Shelby County.
Or as they say from Graefenburg and all points west, Shelby County vs. Anderson County.
First pitch is set for 7 p.m., Thursday night at Carroll County High School. Tickets are $5.
They are the two programs that have dominated Eighth Region baseball since 2000. Anderson has four regional championships since then. Shelby has the same number.
