Rain tomorrow & fri could throw a wrinkle in pitching rotations/plans if games get pushed back. Something to keep an eye on.

Being around Athens baseball for the past 2 Decades, I've gotten to see some pretty good teams with some outstanding players...

I can't speak for Corrigan as a player (didn't get to see him play). But as a Coach, the man knew his Baseball.
I can say that Phillip Hewitt and Brendan Sano have been part of the two best High School Games I have ever been part of, (one as a player, one as a coach).

The 2004 Athens vs. Sheridan District Championship
Phillip Hewitt (Ath) vs. Josh Berrea (She)

(Phil) Hewitt had already pitched Athens to tournament wins over Meigs, Warren, and Jackson heading into the showdown with Sheridan in Chillicothe. The Generals elected not to start Berrea, but quickly went to him in the 1st inning after going down 2-0 after Athens Chris Hewitt's 2-run Homerun in the Top of the 1st. Berrea would keep Athens in check for most of the game. Sheridan would be held to 2 runs. Athens did strike against Berrea late in the game to take a 4-2 lead after loading the bases with 2 walks wrapped around a HBP. Athens 1st Baseman Josh Stanley would get just enough of a Berrea pitch on the outside corner knocking over 1st scoring Chleboun and Hewitt from 3rd and 2nd. That would be all Hewitt would need to outduel the (Future Buckeye) Berrea. Giving Athens the bid to The Sweet Sixteen. This game took 2 days to complete as Both teams had to come back to Chillicothe to finish the 7th inning after Rain/Lightning forced the delay...

The 2016 Athens vs. Jackson Sectional Championship
Brendan Sano (Ath) vs. Hunter Sexton (Jac)

Athens came in as a low seed and just defeated Chillicothe in the opening round. Jackson the upper seed got the Home field game in the Sectional. The Ironmen sent Hunter Sexton to the Hill who in the previous year had a dominating performance against Athens. The Bulldogs who used Brody Rodgers vs. Chillicothe answer with Brendan Sano. Athens was able to get to Sexton early with a few hits, but were not able to score any runs. The Ironmen equally found it difficult to find success at the plate. The Bulldogs were able to run Sexton's pitch count up in the 8th, and the Ironmen had to remove their Ace. The Bulldogs had bases loaded and sent Trey Keiffer to the plate who was able to take a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 giving Athens the first run of the game. Sano would secure the Win in the Bottom of the Eighth for the Bulldogs and the Sectional Championship. Sano and Sexton each had over 15's apiece or more (can't remember the totals.)...

93-
Gibby's last year with Ford/Dean was super talented and tough luck indeed...
Don't forget to include the 2001 Dogs (22-3) with Purdy/Conkey

Pretty accurate recap, I think each had about that many K's.

Unfortunately the one K that didn't count was the pitch on the 2-2 count to the Athens batter in the top of the 8th lol. That strike that was called a ball in the mind of Lightfoot made the count 3-2 lol.

But it was a good contest and the second time in as many years we ended up on the wrong side of a 1-run Sectional match-up. The Ironmen had defeated Sano a couple weeks earlier in another close ballgame at Athens. I think then junior Bryce Hall got credit for the win there, but Sexton had the triple that ultimately got the victory. Sano pitched a whale of a game in the sectional match-up (as did Hunter) but as you mentioned the pitch count was not in our favor. Great game though.

Looking over the bracket, Steubenville has no real competition until the regional championship. They can probably cruise into the final and have their ace available for one of our southeast district teams. Ugh

I agree Steubenville should get to the Regional finals barring some sort of weird "baseball" thing, which obviously happens since it is after all baseball.

This looks like an Athens/Marietta Regional Semi and one of them facing Big Red in the final. I don't see Athens not getting there and unless Meigs can pull off an upset this evening I think Marietta gets there as well.

To get past Marietta in the Regional semi's I assume you have to give the ball to Sano.

Did Athens throw Rodgers against Steubenville last year in the final or Sano? I can't remember.

Yes, Sano went against Waverly. Rodgers vs Steuby.

But don't go making any predictions doubleplay ... lol ... Sheridan is the top seed for a reason. Hillsboro is no push over. Waverly is scrappy and are tournament savy. No guarantee at all Athens or Marietta make it to Zanesville.

Oh I know and agree it will be no pushover getting out of the Athens' Districts.

Too bad the Meigs v. Marietta game is at Marietta, I would like to watch that one and see if Mattox can keep Meigs close.

Well said. I'd add Warren to that list too. And if Mtta gets past Meigs, they could end up facing Wolfe from F. Union, who they barely snuck by last season. This district is very much up for grabs.

Meigs..... 000 00 -- 0
Marietta 130 24 -- 10

No hits for Meigs, although the #3 hitter lined one to right and the RF charged it to try to make the catch, but instead got it cleanly on the first hop and fired to 1B for the out. 3 walks for M

This district has been strong for a while. No repeat winners in last 4 years I believe.
DII Regional
2013 Warren
2014 Jackson
2015 Meigs
2016 Athens & Waverly (took 2 teams)
Fans didn't realize how hard it was to get out of a district with only 1 SEO team advancing. Good decision be OHSAA to allow 2 teams.

Its not ohsaa decision. Its based on enrollment & how many d2 teams are in the district. It could change back to 1 after the new count this coming school year.

Well, that will stink. But understood.

Predictions:
District Finals
Athens vs Warren. Athens wins 2-1
Marietta vs Unioto. Unioto wins 3-2
Regional Semi: Unioto over Athens 3-1

Might be total garbage but fun to think about.
4 very good teams.

I think someone got upset over a spelling error. So what is the process here? Do I have to apologize to you, the school or just fill out a form with SEOPS stating I'll do my best to never make another spelling mistake. Feel better now?

Im very intrigued to see how teams will play it monday. Does Unioto try & save their ace for Marietta? How about Sheridan, what do you do? You sleep on Warren & you may get ousted. Athens is in an odd situation because Sano may not be ready to throw monday after pitching thur while still coming back from injury. Every team & coach has decisions to make before monday. The million dollar question: to gamble or not to gamble with your rotation.

^^^^
The good thing for Unioto is that they have 3 other pitchers with ERA's under 1.50, who have all thrown a lot of innings. I'm thinking that they will go with Patterson (their ace) against MT and go from there.

Definitely will be interesting to see what Coach Taylor decides!

I'm a gambler by nature, I walk into a casino and put it all on red ... lol ... so personally, I'd save my ace if a top seed awaits in the next game. Kind of a luxury to play at 7:00 Monday, you'll know who will be playing on Wed before your game starts.
