Jefferson battles Herculaneum in Jefferson County Baseball on KJFF

(Herculaneum) Jefferson County Baseball sees rivals renew acquaintances when the Jefferson Blue Jays meet the Herculaneum Blackcats Tuesday on KJFF.

Jefferson has just a 6-8 overall record after starting the season 3-1.

But junior Sam Stokes and seniors Jack Hueter and Colton Richardson can help the Blue Jays start conference play 2-0 with a win as they look to repeat as champions of the JCAA Small-School Division.

Head coach Robert Kuehnle says an otherwise young team has done what is expected of them.

Herculaneum is eyeing a 3-1 start to league play thanks to potent hitters like juniors Rickey Johnson, Dylan Black and Dylan Jarvis.

But the Blackcats are just 4-6-1 overall, and head coach Ryan Dickerman says improving their pitching is what it will take to do better.

The Blue Jays have won seven of the last 8 meetings with the Blackcats.

Herculaneum hosts Jefferson Tuesday afternoon on Jefferson County Baseball.

Coverage begins with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show at 4:15 on AM 1400 KJFF.
