The holiday season is officially here. With Thanksgiving in mind I thought I’d pass along my list of reasons for baseball fans in Kentucky to be thankful this year. Feel free to pass along your lists as well


I’m thankful for:

  • Another season to watch James Paxton in college
  • A healthy return in 2010 for Brandon Webb
  • A second consecutive World Series appearance from Joe Blanton.
  • Conference titles from UofL and WKU
  • The resurgence of Scott Downs
  • A respectable Lexington Legends team in 2009
  • Bowling Green becoming the third minor league franchise in the state
  • A playoff appearance for the Louisville Bats
  • Josh Anderson and Brandon Webb being inducted into the EKU and UK Halls of Fame
  • Dan Uggla, Austin Kearns, Todd Wellemeyer and Corey Hart dominating offseason storylines.
  • Sawyer Carroll continuing to prove his detractors wrong.
  • Christian Friedrich moving even closer to the big leagues.
  • Kentucky high school alums Robbie Ross, Ben Revere and Chaz Roe moving up their organization’s prospect lists.
  • What’s sure to be an even greater impact from Kentucky on major league baseball in 2010!
