  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    KANSAS CITY – When Nathan Adcock walked into the spacious Kansas City Royals’ clubhouse, he was in awe of his surroundings. After spending five years climbing the minor league ladder, Adcock had reached the ultimate destination.

    But as Adcock walked over to his locker – the biggest locker he says he’s had – the first thing he noticed wasn’t the jersey hanging with his last name on it or the numerous Kansas City gear hanging up.

    “There was a UK jacket in there,” Adcock said.

  • OPINION: Adcock's nerves...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Nathan Adcock doesn’t get nervous, especially with the ball in his hand when he steps on the mound. That is where he feels the most comfortable.

    That’s his home away from home.

    Adcock has pitched a number of big games. He relishes the role of delivering a victory for his team in the most critical circumstances.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It’s been a long, hard road for Nathan Adcock. Success hasn’t come overnight for a fifth-round pick in the 2006 draft, but it’s been a grind. It’s been just as hard on family members being there for the highs and lows.

    Adcock, who has spent the last five years in the minor leagues, has made countless phone calls during that time – most of them in the late night hours. Some were to let the family know how a particular start went. Some were more difficult as Adcock questioned what he was doing.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    KANSAS CITY – Nathan Adcock made his Major League debut on opening day, but he hasn’t appeared in a game since last Thursday.

    That doesn’t mean Adcock, a rookie pitcher with the Kansas City Royals, has had time to rest outside of an off day Monday.

    “During the minor leagues we’d have an off day, but we’d still have work to do,” Adcock said. “Here it’s a little more relaxed.”

  • PREP BASEBALL: Casey...

    Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts doesn’t have a hard time finding teams to play in the program’s spring break round robin because of the support of the community.

    This is the third year for the event – the Casey Chiropractic/South Central Bank Classic. The two sponsors make it possible for Pitts not to charge an entry fee.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Whelan...

    Andrea Whelan had another brilliant outing for the North Hardin Trojans, but her offense couldn’t back her up for the second straight game.

    Whelan, a senior, struck out 10 but the Trojans couldn’t produce much at the plate as they lost to Choctaw (Fla.), 2-1 on Thursday.

    Whelan scattered two hits – both singles – and one walk in six innings.

    Whelan also went 4-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Sixth-grader Aubree Muse and freshman Stephanie Thomas each had a single.
