  • Help needed with summer diamond All-Stars
        SHEPHERDSVILLE-- It's here again.     It is time for the summer baseball and softball All-Star season.     Normally, my internal clock for covering such things tells me that around the July 4th holiday that All-Star action will begin. Often times, it is the first weekend after the holiday.     This year, word is trickling in that some leagues and age groups are getting a jump on that, starting play as early as this week.
