Athens (24-3) vs Steubenville (27-4) Regional Finals

Post by Raider6309 » Sat May 27, 2017 3:19 pm

Sunday 5 pm at Gant. Weather looks like thunderstorms for Zanesville tomorrow. If the game is moved back until Monday, did Sano and Zorne throw under 75 pitches?

Thoughts?

Probably the dumbest delay in sports history. They literally were trying to restart the entire game. You can't make this up

Athens loses to steuby for the 2nd year - and for the 2nd year in a row I was not impressed with the big red at all. Marietta with Dawson on the mound would have easilly beat them. Actually, I think Athens & Marietta were both as good if not better than steuby this year. It was just unfortunate how things played out. The 10 inning game was a back breaker for the Bulldogs having to use their 1 AND 2.

What a cluster to the start of the game. I still can't believe that what went down, went down...

The OHSAA needs to re-evaluate the locations of these big games.
As you move through the tournament, the locations/fields need to improve, not get worse.
Ohio University's Wren Stadium to Zanesville's 1900's Gant Football Stadium is not how the progression should follow. The way Wren Stadium hosted the District is the way you would think a regional would be hosted.

Zanesville was not, and is not prepared to host the Regionals for any Division.
The Site Director was not on site, and he was the only person who didn't know which team was home/away and caused the delay. There were also times during the game where the two teams had to wait for baseball's to be returned to the field. You shouldn't ever be at a Regionals Final and have the umpire standing waiting for someone from the site to bring him baseballs so the game can continue at a smooth pace...

If it was for the Athens Coach fighting for answers, you would have witnessed a (Restart) to a Regional Finals game that was already delayed by over 20 plus minutes after 1 out, 1 hit and a third batter with a 1 and 1 count had already happened...

The last thing I want to say about this location is player safety. Both teams had players run into hard surfaces not properly suited for player safety. The Steubenville 3rd Baseman made a heck of an attempt to catch a foul ball on the sideline and found himself falling into the concrete football bleachers. Athens Catcher turned and tried to catch a foul ball and when he made contact with the makeshift backstop nothing was there to protect his head which hit pretty hard.

To say that the delay didn't play a role in the outcome would be lying. It definitely played a role in that inning, which played a role in the outcome...

questionmark: I encourage you and many others to voice their displeasure to the OHSAA (Via Jerry Snodgrass). Contacts are located on the page. The more they hear about this debacle and terrible site then maybe they will look into moving it. I know I have complained to Jerry many times over the past 13 years and he continues to agree in a way but also blame their are not enough sites to host. I think Gant has something on the OHSAA that just does not allow them to get rid of it. Not sure what that may be. Hopefully it moves soon before something even worse happens.

Great season to the Bulldogs, Congrats, Wish it wouldve turned out better. Was looking forward to the State Final 4 with a SE ohio team represented.

Was not at the game and have not seen Steubenville play this year. However, I have watched many games in Gant Stadium over the years and have enjoyed all of them. And in all of the games I have seen there, the better team won.

Congrats to Athens on a fine season. And best of luck to the Big Red of Steubenville. Third time in their history they have made back-to-back trips to the State tournament. By the way, Steubenville is the 3rd winningest baseball team in Ohio history. They don't have to apologize to anyone for their success. ROLL RED ROLL!!!

Gant Stadium has to be the worst site for a Regional game. It is a complete dump with a terrible playing surface and should not be used for games of this magnitude.

However, with a score of 9-2, I can't say that it would've made a major difference where the game was played with the circumstances that Athens was in pitching wise. Good luck to Steubenville this weekend at a real stadium.

if they're willing, Ohio University should host the regionals. It's a much better facility. Gant Stadium has seen its better days.

Off topic but I was looking through old Athens messenger articles. In 1969 there was article about the Columbus fairgrounds being a dump. Ohsaa stayed there for a long time

I coached a game there in 06 and couldn't believe that it was hosting a game still and thought that it must have been a last minute replacement...11 years late and it can only be worse.

I couldn't even imagine how terrible it has gotten over the last 25 years if it was a dump then lol

Yeah. Athens put up 58 at Death Valley, most points scored there in over 50 years. And it wasn't a down Steubenville team, they have made 4 straight state appearances plus 2 straight finals appearances. They will walk to a state title this year

For the baseball game, Steubenville won 9-2. Two seasons in a row Steubenville had a big first inning on Athens

Go to rollredroll.com and you will see that 58 is not the most points scored in Harding in over 50 years. Not even close.

But congrats to Athens on the win. I can see you're still living it. Good luck to the Bulldogs this football season. Big Red will once again be strong.

I think Steubenville is still the team mad about that game.

Yes he has lived it for a couple years now.

Leave it to Raider to insert the Athens 2014 football team into a baseball discussion. Surprised we don't see a pic of the D3 football runner up trophy he usually inserts into these discussions.

I wonder why Athens only scheduled Big Red for one year in football? Oh, wait, never mind, I know.

Second year in row Steubenville has gone to State Tournament and their offense did not show up. I have seen both Steubenville games at state and the offense struggled both years.
Hats off to Steubenville for having 2 outstanding seasons and getting to the state tournament 2 years in row. I looked over Steubenville's schedule and would think they probably need to match up with some of the better teams in the state to gain experience at facing top notch pitching. I do not see why Steubenville does not schedule Berlin Hiland, Massillon Jackson, Tallmadge. The last few years Hiland and Massillon Jackson have had elite teams. Tallmadge is going to play Dayton Chaminade in the D2 State Championship game. I think games against some top notch programs in the State of Ohio will help Steubenville take the next step.

Heard the kid from Dayton Chaminade-Julienne threw in the 87-92 range. Second year in a row the Big Red was beaten by a pitcher who threw BBs.

Bottom line: we were beaten by a better team, just like Athens was.

28-5 isn't too bad a record. Most coaches would love to have that kind of finish to their season. And the second best pitcher on the team was a freshman this year. I'm sure the cupboard is not bare. Time to gear up for golf and football. Roll Red Roll!!!
