WORLD SERIES BOUND: Blue Lick 18 gives Ford dream trip

 HILLVIEW -- For some, it might be the first time to fly on an airplane.

For others, it might be the first time to travel outside the Kentuckiana area.

But for Challis Ford, it will be his first trip to the Babe Ruth World Series.

After coaching young men the art of baseball for the past 45 years, Ford will have his first opportunity to join nine other elite teams from across the United States.
