  • COLLEGE BASEBALL: NC’s McGill signs with Kentucky Wesleyan

    Viewers on social media were treated to an up-close exhibition of the accuracy and strength of the right hand of Nelson County baseball star Benton McGill on a Valentine’s Day video that went viral.

    With his basketball team trailing North Bullitt by two points and only seconds remaining in the game, McGill took an inbounds pass, threw the ball three-quarters of the length of the court and into the basket for a one-point win.

    Of course, baseball teams in the area were already cognizant of the Cardinal pitcher’s abilities.
