Rich with pitching talent, Johnson County high school varsity baseball coaches, generally speaking, hope their bats come through with enough run support to help the arms translate into wins.

“If we can pitch well and get guys out, we’re going to be in games, and that’s all I can ask for — that we have a chance to win at the end of the day,” said Indian Creek baseball coach Adam Blackburn, echoing the sentiments of other Johnson County coaches.

Meanwhile, Franklin returns six regular contributors from last year’s team that won county, Mid-State Conference and sectional crowns. Center Grove will look to defend its Metropolitan Conference titles, while Greenwood, Indian Creek and Edinburgh, all of which contended for conference crowns last year, hope to take the next step.
