Pro baseball players take a swing at Nicholasville start-up league

About five nights a week for two months this summer, more than 120 young men fill the rechristened Eagle Sports Complex on the 27 Bypass in Nicholasville to pursue their own dreams of playing in the big leagues. The organizers of the six-team Thoroughbred Baseball League cannot promise them more a few hundred dollars a month, a place to stay and a chance to build their baseball resumes, but the players don’t ask for much more than that.
