    Trimble County Head Baseball Coach Frank Ragland is hoping to build on the accomplishments of last year’s “building season” after guiding a young Raider team to a 9-20 record.

  • Trimble suffers shivering loss

    The outdoor temperature was almost better suited for a hockey match-up than a baseball game when the Carroll County Panthers came to do battle with the Trimble County Raiders on the baseball diamond Thursday.

    Spectators who braved the cold either snuggled in blankets on the aluminum bleachers or huddled by their car heaters as the boys of spring held a frost fest.

    Catcher’s mitts, fielders’ and batters’ gloves were no protection for the lads as heavy, gray clouds cast a gloomy pall over the event.

    The Trimble County Raiders opened the 2011 baseball campaign with a 4-0 shutout over Owen County on March 22. Josh Baker drove in two runs with a double in the second inning to give the Raiders the early lead. Trimble added two runs in the fourth inning for the final tally.

    “It was a good outing defensively,” Trimble Head Coach Frank Ragland said. “We made the plays we needed. We were alert and talking to each other.”
