Edmonson Voice Sports:
It's been 25 years since "Bub's Babes" won the A.S.A. Kentucky State 16 & Under in Glasgow, a team made up of nine players from Edmonson County.
Local business woman Joanna Johnson Forbes, who was a member of the team, said the team was started around 1994 by Coach Bub Brent, from Cave City. In addition to Forbes, the '97 slow-pitch team players from Edmonson County were: Coach Jeff Barbee, Coach Rick Keith, Briton LeSieur Elmore, Jennifer Slaughter Gravil, Sasha Lynn Jaggers, Crystal Leann Wolfe, Barbara Jo Barbee Tuck, Brittany Keith Mabrey, Lacy Booth, and Jenny Rae Barbee Rector.
After winning the state title, the Babes went on to Orlando, Florida to compete in the World National ASA Tournament, where they would eventually place 10th in the entire nation.
"Coach Bub has passed away since, but we loved him so much!" said Forbes. "What an honor it was to be a Babe."
Forbes said the team was made up of players from both Edmonson County and Cave City and their home field was at Caverna.
