Looks like Faulkner got a transfer from Hazard, a young power hitter. Heard she was the DH for the varsity towards the end of the season.

We all know it all starts at the pitcher catcher slots. Perry has the best 2.

Now everyone knows that all the other coaches in the region are either older than dirt and just plain worn out or dont have the head coaching experience needed to be a championship coach. Bobby Ratliff has to be the best coach in the region by far (he has the youth, coaching ability, and the college baseball pedigree that none of the others have and not to mention he has the best hair. Perry Central is the favorite. Facts are facts.
not really any facts, besides the good hair.

I possibly see Wolfe winning It. But if Estill new coach plays to the strengths she has. I can see Estill squeaking thru with a win. Better not forget about Jackson City!! Very well coached team that could slide in.

Agree, Jackson City will be in the mix.

You can have outstanding hitting in fast pitch softball, but if your up against state caliber pitching, hitting is second. The 14th region has not reached the pinnacle of top 5 pitchers in the state yet. Great pitching always super seeds great hitting. Facts are facts and maybe someday we will see that one pitcher int the 14th region that can carry their team to state final game...I sure hope so..

All the best athletes play basketball in the 14th region and dont play softball. If the better athletes would start young pitching the proper way, they would catch up.

So I'm confused on something. Jim McAlister (great guy) has Wolfe at #1 and Estill at #2 in his 14th region preseason rankings but in region's 13-16, he has Estill at 6 and Wolfe at like 8 or 9.

Speaking of Estill, Estill's JV beat Estill's varsity 6-4 in a scrimmage the other day. Judging by the gamechanger stats, it doesn't look like Riddle didn't play.

The rankings that has Wolfe ranked as #1 was not McAlisters personal rankings. Those were voted on by coaches in those regions. The other rankings were the ones McAlister personally did.

The Estill Scrimmage wasn't JV versus Varsity. It was mixed and some players switched in and out. Kaylee did not play.

Well if you have the best pitcher, catcher, and coach you canít lose to Morgan County 6-2. Morgan hasnít had a good season in several years.

Hazard played Floyd last night and wasn't missing anyone. I'm not sure who you are referring to, but the dawgs were out in full force.

Perry is in rebuilding mode after losing the 5 seniors from last year and another starter suffering a knee injury. We have a freshman pitcher that will do well once she gets some experience. Coach Ratliff knows the game and will do great things. I don't think our team is top five in the region. We probably fall somewhere between 6-8 and that is premature knowing the season is just getting underway. I think by the end of the season we are strides better than we are now and will compete with Hazard for the district championship.

Facts are they have lost to a very average Morgan County team and a very average Breathitt County team by a combined score of 17-8
If you have the
Best pitcher in the region
Best Catcher in the region
Best coach in the region
You shouldnít be 0-2 against Morgan and Breathitt. Facts are facts

These early regular season games dont amount to a can of beans. Perry will beat the cornbread out of these region teams by the end of the year.

Last time I checked there is 9 players out in the field. The majority of this Perry team had never played a varsity game. They are going to drop some of these games early in the season but by the end of the year they will be very competitive. Iím not saying theyíre gonna win region but I do think they will win their district and could pull off a win in the region.

We shall see....Ratliff is a great coach...but wondering about the pitcher and catcher being all that....but, you can have the best pitcher in the region...but poor defense and no hitting...absolutely gets you nowhere. Even with a good pitcher.

Dawgs did lose a girl from last years team, the Wickline girl transferred to Powell just before basketball season, she was one of the eighth graders that William pulled up last year when Candi was on a trip. She was the DH for the rest of the season for them. She was hitting 4th and playing 1st base for Powell last night at Johnson Central.

To my knowledge the last time Perry Central had a great team was when the school was first built in 2005. They won the first 4 years district straight , 3 years straight region and the Pikeville invitational. Not seen anything much since then.

Well one reason why is the little league program was a Hazard ran feeder program for a long time, county kids didnt participate. Perry County also didnt have a middle school program for a very long time either. There is plenty county participation in the league and theres a middle school team. In a year or two, Perry will be where they need to be.
