OWENSBORO - Jimmy Dugan was wrong.
No matter what the Tom Hanks character believed, there really is crying in baseball. Anderson County showed it Saturday.
The tears were subdued, but the red eyes were there after the Lady Bearcats advanced deep in the state tournament Friday and Saturday before dropping a heart-breaker to Ryle, the 2006 state champion, in the consolation bracket semi-final.
The game was really softball, baseball's close first cousin, but Dugan was wrong nonetheless.
