SPORTS BRIEFS: Central standouts play in All-Star games

RICHMOND — Three Madison Central baseball players took part in a pair of All-Star showcases earlier this week in Lexington.

Joseph Holbrook and Josh Wright represented the East All-Stars in the Kentucky Sophomore All-Star Games, while Ben Morin was selected to the East squad for the Kentucky Junior All-Star Games.

The games were held at Bryan Station on Wednesday.

Holbrook started the first of the two Sophomore All-Star Games. He did not allow a run and his fastball topped out at 85 miles an hour.

Wright also had an RBI as the East picked up a 4-3 win.

The West team won game two, 2-1.

The Sophomore East All-Star Team was coached by Madison Central’s Steve Roof, who was also selected as the 11th Region Coach of the Year after leading the Indians to 29 wins.

In the junior games, the East and West All-Stars split, with the East winning the first game and the West taking the second game.

The All-Star games drew a large contingent of Division I coaches, including coaches from Middle Tennessee, Austin Peay, Tennessee Tech, Western Kentucky, Kentucky, EKU and several others.
