The capital was absolutely packed today. State tourney game , Nations Baseball Tourney, Golf Memorial, OSU graduation, sounds like the game was exciting. Can anyone give a box score or a run down of how this all went down ??

U mean for this year? Every team will have a good team every now and then! Southern Ohio schools just don’t have the population or jobs to keep schools reloading like back in the 80’s and back years(you had Portsmouth, burg, valley, green, New Boston and northwest back in the 80’s that made deep runs every year). That’s because of the population. Also you had 3 of the best coaches in the state in scioto in Tipton, Hagerty and Shuler. You will not see these school have runs like the last couple years anymore or for awhile.Now football is different because of Ohio being a football state. Baseball isn’t Ohio sport which has a lot of bad weather to have good baseball. Ur hot states have fall and spring baseball. It’s either to cold or rainy for baseball where you need to break a sweat and get loose, where football that’s ok

Solid post with lots of truth. Never was around Tipton much but Haggerty and Schuler were both outstanding coaches. I'll add Tim Martin to that list. 20 years of developing fundamentally sound baseball players and young men.

Schools used to hire coaches. Those coaches had long tenures. Now schools have to offer those positions to existing employees first and not all, but some are duds that flat out have no clue how to coach and how to teach fundamentals. So the coaching has fallen off.

Weather is a major issue for baseball around here. In college we had 4 dominicans on our team. It's hard to compete with guys who play baseball year round in great climates.

Good post.

Isn't it wonderful how major league ball clubs are building baseball academies in the Dominican to further increase there opportunities to hone their baseball skills at no cost and to play pro ball and become filthy rich while we pay large amounts of $$$$$ on travel ball for our children to MAYBE be seen, but usually at best get a partial scholarship to play college ball somewhere, graduate with debt and come home to no job! I have heard quite a few people of my generation complain about how lazy this generation is. But here's something to think about concerning this generation...they've fought 2 wars in the gulf region for America and it was 100% VOLUNTEER, no draft! Yeah baby lets all work some OT this week so we can all take the kids to watch the Reds! :roll:
