  • McCarty was the King Bee

    The passing of long-time businessman Charlie McCarty last week was a sad time for his family and the community. However, it did also stir up some recollections of his sports days.
    McCarty opened then Burger Queen around 1970 and it was a big deal for Campbellsville. He also fielded a softball team — one he was the left-handed catcher on.
    “He would slide head first,” fondly remembered former outfielder Frank Gaskins earlier this week. “He hated losing.”

  • Burkhead bowing out of baseball

    Kevin Burkhead has been involved with sports all his life. This past May could be his last season on the diamond.

    Burkhead has lots of fine memories of his time in Campbellsville as his baseball coaching days started with the late Robert Kearney and the Little League Twins in 1986.
