  • All region baseball champs go to...

    There's an old saying that if you keep a tie long enough it will come back into style. That will be the case with state tournament baseball.

    For 2010, all 16 regional winners will advance to Applebee's Park to compete for the championship and the semi-state will be eliminated.

    The regional tournament will start Memorial Day with second round action that Thursday and the finals the following Tuesday, giving everyone a week and a half to play their regional tournament. The single elimination state tournament with all 16 teams would start that next Monday.

    Taylor County High School graduate Leonard Macon will be heading to Louisville to enroll in classes and play football at the University of Louisville.

    “They’re looking at me as a wide receiver and maybe to return kick-offs,” Macon said on Friday while watching the final game of the All “A” Basketball Shootout at Campbellsville High School.

    Macon said he is supposed to be at U of L on July 10 and the coaches tell him he has an excellent chance to earn a scholarship.
