Bates' Crazy 8

May 29, 2013 — Baseball:

1. Greenup County (22-12)

2. Ashland (23-9)

3. Bath County (20-9)

4. East Carter (18-16)

5. Lewis County (27-10)

6. Boyd County (19-16)

7. Rowan County (18-17)

8. Morgan County (18-9)

Once again, these rankings mean absolutely nothing with the Regional Tournament beginning on Memorial Day. Who knows where these teams end up when it is all said and done.

Greenup is playing the best baseball right now, winning the 63rd District but Ashland and Lewis County want to make a point by playing their way for a shot at the state tournament.


1. Ashland (22-9)

2. East Carter (23-11)

3. Russell (15-14)

4. Rowan County (22-15)

5. Boyd County (24-10)

6. Greenup County (18-16)

7. West Carter (12-13)

8. Menifee County (13-18)

Let me start by saying that any of these teams in the field of the 16th Region Tournament has a shot to win it. All have really good pitching and if a team’s defense comes to play, it is anyone’s ballgame.

Ashland and East Carter are coming alive at the right time while Rowan County returned the 61st District Championship to Morehead after a brief absence. Russell and Greenup County had to settle the 63rd in 13 innings but the Lady Devils won their sixth straight championship.

Here we go!
