    On Nov. 26, North Oldham shortstop Connor Heady signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Kentucky.
    Unlike most of his fellow signees, this appears to be just the beginning of the decision-making process for the All-State shortstop.
    While a roster slot waits for him in Lexington, Heady expects to have another big decision to make come summer — whether to play professional baseball.
