  • Kuester not afraid to release All-PAC while still playing

    Kudos to South Spencer baseball coach Brian Kuester.
    My compliment at this time has nothing to do with his being a great coach - many will tell you he’s the best baseball coach in southern Indiana - and a member of the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame.
    Or maybe it does.
    The Pocket Athletic Conference coaches met June 2 to elect their all-conference baseball team.
