Jackets fall to Hazard in All ‘A’ sectional

16 hours ago | | | Email

HAZARD — A couple of costly errors and a lack of production from the bottom half of the lineup made the difference on Friday in the Middlesboro Yellow Jackets’ 8-5 loss at Hazard in their All “A” sectional.“Hazard has got a good club, I knew they did. I told the boys all week it was going to be a war and that’s exactly what it was,” Middlesboro coach John Smith said. “I wish them luck going on to the state tournament.”Freshman Griffin Wells turned in an outstanding performance on the mound for the Bulldogs. In a 134-pitch complete game, the lefty gave up five runs, two earned, on four hits while striking out 12 and walking four.

Where the wild things are, again

As a kid growing up in Cumberland, my big decision on Saturdays was whether to go to the Novo Theatre at 20 cents or the Corlee at 15 cents. I never knew what was playing at either (unless it was one of those cliff hangers from the week before), but I knew it would be good: Cartoons, news reels and a western short film starring Tom Mix or Hopalong Cassidy, maybe my favorite, Lash LaRue. In these short films I first learned about ghost towns in the west, areas where the gold and silver mines h...
