I wouldn't be surprised to see Corbin move into the drivers seat. They definitely have the talent.

Based on what everyone is supposed to have coming back, I would say 1. North, 2. Knox Central, 3. Corbin, 4. Middlesboro, 5. Clay Co., 6. Harlan Co.

Corbin's catcher is out for the year, and 3 seniors quit. Unexperienced players on the field but there is some talent in there.

1. Knox
2. North
3. Harlan Co.
Clay
South
Middlesboro
Whitley
No guarantee if Knox or North wins the 13th region though. Every team I listed 3rd has 1-2 stud pitchers that could knock out any team on any given day.

I think I'd put North first because the pitching and fielding is better..

I've heard Gambrel, Vannorstran, Barnes, Gibson, Roark are not playing cause they decided to not play, Taylor (their catcher) isn't playing due to knee injury in football, so unsure about the Redhounds, Whitley may sneak up on some.. Heard their pitching should be pretty good with Dylan, Caleb, and Tyler Downs on their staff and as we all know you have to be strong on the mound? I think the nod has to be given to North or Knox with a sleeper in Harlan County for the 13th. I just think there will be more parity in the Districts this year than most. South in the 50th will always be strong due to their numbers alone, but who knows???

Barbourville has a decent coach and ok talent and Middlesboro has the McCullough kid that can help you by himself, I wonder if Williamsburg or any of the other small schools will make any moves to better their records this year in their respective "All A" tournys

Knox is a lot deeper at pitcher. North has one stud, and then a couple solid pitchers. Knox has at least 3 stud pitchers, and a ton of solid ones. But like I said, you can only use one, so who knows.

I didn't know that many had quit. Sounds like the wheels may be falling off. Either way. The jr, so, and fr classes are stacked with talent. They may be a year away, but after this season the coaches seat will start to heat up a little of he doesn't produce. He has the best run of talent Corbin has had in a long time.

If anything, North Laurel has 2 studs. Griebel and Campobianco are studs, but they have plenty to choose from up there so don't count them out. It is Laurel County, so they seem to come up out of nowhere up there

I know some of the Corbin kids personally. The main reasons behind the seniors of Corbin not playing is the coach. The kids felt as if they were wasting time because the coaches did not give them a chance to succeed. Gambrel was a very large part at the plate for the Redhounds, and Vannorstran was a viable piece on the mound. Other seniors may not have contributed, however, the loss of Grant Gibson is huge. Gambrel, Vannorstran, and Gibson were in the starting lineups last year. It is time for a change in Corbin, if they ever want to see their baseball team produce.

With the pitching of other teams in the region and lack of coaching at Corbin, there Is no possible way to make a run. The southwestern game was sad, errors everywhere but Estep and kids getting picked off consecutively because a lack of attention from both coaches and players. I am so disappointed in this program, it's like the school no longer cares about the kids.

After a week or so, North is 1-2 with a loss at Harlan Co., Knox is 0-2 with home losses to Middlesboro and Whitley, Corbin is 1-2 with a home loss to Middlesboro, South is 1-3. Middlesboro has been impressive with their two good road wins, Whitley is off to a 2-0 start, so is Clay Co. Overall, looks like it will be a really wide open year in the region, will depend on who can line their pitching up the way they need it come regional tournament time.

Corbin looks to be struggling with the loss of so many deciding not to play. Middlesboro will be a tough out when McCullough is on the mound. We will see what they can do when he is not. Whitley coming out somewhat stronger than expected. I look for Clay and South to be leading the pack. Knox has the talent, must get it playing together. Who knows going to be a fun year, don't count out the Black Bears.

Tyler McCullough for Middlesboro struck out 13 batters in the game against Corbin last night. They will undoubtedly lose something when he is not on the mound but they then have ht advantage of being having the best shortstop in the region.

The region seems to be much more wide open than in years past. There may be a handful of teams that are capable of taking the title this year.

Corbin loses to Middlesboro finishing with two hits the entire game. Starting to look live a very long, struggling year for the Redhounds

I'm always around for Middlesboro baseball! I may fade away for football each year but that won't happen again as I don't plan to venture back to that forum anymore.

If I have any stats, I will continue to add them. I just got the numbers from McCullough from the Corbin paper.

How 'bout those Colonels??? They have a very strong pitching staff that should carry them along this season and will compete for the District Championship for sure. Middlesboro has a good coach and a very good ball player in the McCullough kid. He has been a very good baseball player since little league and should have a strong career in college.
