    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.

    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.

  • Several teams capable of winning...

    Since regular readers of this column know I am a diehard Boston Red Sox fan and since the Red Sox won the World Series last year, you are probably expecting me to pick them to win it again.
    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.
