Southwest Indiana Baseball

first_imgRecently, when Batesville High School lost its regional game to Gibson Southern in a game played at Jasper, Indiana,  it reminded me of some of the great major league ball players who grew up in that area.  For you old timers out there, we have Gil Hodges who grew up in Princeton and went on to star with the Dodgers.  His exceptional major league career needs no further explanations.More recently, Scott Rolen (who finished his career with the Reds) retired and returned to his home town of Jasper, Indiana.  It is debatable by the experts whether or not Scott will make the Hall of Fame, but he certainly has represented his home state of Indiana quite well.  As most of you know, the Reds have not been the same team since his retirement.The last member of this southwest Indiana area is Don Mattingly, the present manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Don still lives in Evansville, Indiana, during the off season.  The town has a street named after him.  His major league statistics take a back seat to no one.  His career was spent with the New York Yankees.last_img read more
