Shelbyville Sports: Student Athletes Soar in Shelbyville

Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis is a major destination for Shelbyville sports fansDue to its size and proximity to Indiana capital Indianapolis, Shelbyville, Indiana doesn’t have a major sports presence. It has no minor league teams of any sort, and certainly no professional teams. This isn’t such a major loss, though; Shelbyville sports enthusiasts can make the short trip up to the Circle City to take in plenty of Indianapolis sports action. This small satellite community is quick drive away from Conseco Fieldhouse and Lucas Oil Stadium, so Shelbyville residents can get their Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Colts fix almost any time they want to.
