    TELL CITY—Even in a loaded conference and sectional, Tell City’s baseball team should have enough experience to compete with anybody on its schedule this season.
    So said second-year Coach Jason Wilkerson Tuesday, and the numbers back him up.
    The Marksmen return their top five pitchers and six of their nine regulars in the batting order from a 14-10 team that upset Mater Dei in the first round of the sectional last year and also beat Class 2A state champion South Spencer in a regular-season game.

    Well, read on and you might be surprised.
    Yes, the Red Sox have nearly all their key pitchers—starters and relievers—returning.
    They lost only Ryan Dempster, and he went 8-9 with a 4.57 ERA for them last year. And they have picked up Edward Mujica to give them more depth in the bullpen.
