As Oldham County charged to a second straight Region 8 title last year, one of its best players was stuck in the dugout.
Kailey Rigdon, a junior first baseman garnering Division-I interest, dove back into third base during a game over the 2013 spring break. The momentum of her dive carried her body forward, but her arm stayed put, grabbing the base.
A season-ending torn labrum in her shoulder was the result. The injury was especially frustrating, Rigdon said, because it affected her college plans.
