BE’s Simpson signs to play baseball at EKU

 MOUNT WASHINGTON – As early as he could remember, Bullitt East senior Garrett Simpson has had a baseball in his hand.

That makes sense since his father, Craig, was a standout pitcher at Bullitt Central before going on to play college baseball at Ohio Wesleyan. Like his father, Garrett has become a quality pitcher.

Success pitching for Bullitt East attracted top colleges to the family’s doorstep. In the fall, Simpson decided that Eastern Kentucky University would be where he would ply his trade over the next four years.
