    For several days last week, my Twitter feed was busy with what seemed to be countless reminders about Saturday being the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Title IX law.

    I clicked on links to stories about the pioneers of women in sport in the 1960s who might have been much of the impetus for the landmark legislation. I even got some information about ESPN3 launching a new station, called ESPNW, showing nothing but women's sports.

  • BASEBALL: Mudcats improve summer...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats improved their summer baseball record to 7-4-1 with three wins over the past week.

    “I have been impressed with the boys as out schedule is again strong and they have shown some maturity in those come-from-behind wins this past week,” said Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver, who actually had to miss several of the Mudcats' games last week.

    The Mudcats also notched two wins over the Morse Mustangs, of Danville, and salvaged a tie in another game with the same club.

  • Alves goes west to begin chase...

    Jordan Alves has taken Horace Greeley's advice to a new level.

    The young man has gone west. Like 2,360 miles, give or take a few singles, west for his first job as a head baseball coach.

    The Anderson County High School graduate is coaching with the Portland  Baseball Club organization. As in Portland, Oregon, the town Alves was probably more familiar with as the hometown of former Kentucky basketball player Terrence Jones than a place that would give him his first chance at running the show on the diamond.

  • Shootout supremacy

    The Central Kentucky Batcats 14-and-under fast-pitch softball team took first place at the National Softball Association Young Guns Shootout on June 10 in Lexington. The Batcats went 6-0 in the tournament, scoring 49 runs while only allowing 8. Team members are, front row, from left: Mia Aldridge, Kylee Kearns, Kaci Currens, Abby Goodlett and Tara Phillips.  Second row: Ariel Dailey, Sammy Rogers, Katelyn Harrod, Bailey Curry, Allyson Moore and Courtney Gale Hawkins.

  • COLUMN: A guide to better sports

    If I could take a Louisville Slugger and turn it into a magic want, I would wave it over sports as we know it and make the world all good.

    You know what I mean. Every year would see the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series, the Boston Celtics in The Finals, the Kentucky Wildcats would go to the Final Four and the Dallas Cowboys would be in the Super Bowl.

    Not win every year, mind you.  Gotta taste a little of the bad to make the good taste even better, you know.

  • BASEBALL: Brown shines as...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats' 15-and-under baseball team has gotten off to a good start, going 4-2 in its first week of summer action.

    “This is a group with a lot of talent and to this point are showing that they may be figuring out the rest of what it takes to win. There are a lot of positives so far,” said coach Chris Copenhaver.
