  • 30th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Bearcats learn baseball can be a cruel game

    SHELBYVILLE – It looked like a good pitch.

    It WAS a good pitch.

    Two were out in the bottom of the ninth and Anderson County's Josh Brown had 1-2 count on Collins' Dan Sanders.

    Somehow, though, Sanders got his bat on a fastball, dropping a soft line drive into right field to score Mason Jeffries and give Collins a 1-0 walk-off win over Anderson County in the 30th District semifinal game at Shelby County Athletic Complex last Tuesday.
