    ROCKPORT – For Tell City native Hunter Rowe, the opportunity to play for Rockport in American Legion baseball this summer was too good to pass up, with all of the potential opportunities that await him down the road.

  • Whalen clinches tie for first...

    TELL CITY—Taking advantage of what the other team gives you usually leads to success in youth sports.
    Whalen Properties followed that formula to win two age-11-15 girls softball games Monday to improve to 8-0.
    Whalen clinched at least a tie for first place in the five-team league, as it has four regular-season games left and the next three teams each have four losses.
    Whalen had only three hits in Monday’s first game but took advantage of eight Cash Waggner errors and six passed balls to win 11-2.
