Athens has a seriously bright future! Really nice team for at least the next 2 years and probably longer with what they have in place.

Gallia Academy 0
Hillsboro 1
8 innings
Coach Corvin retired
Huh? Corvin retired?
Yes, coach Corvin has stepped away from the Gallia Academy Baseball Program. He has put in a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into that program. Congratulations on a great run.
Tonight's game was a tough one. Two very good pitchers dealing. However, I will say there are two things you can't control in baseball. 1. is the weather, and 2. are the umpires. Not complaining about calls. There are tough one's to be made. My complaint is with one that had to show he's the show and was above the game. Hillsboro kid was ejected for drawing a line. Ejected immediately. I get that the kid should not have done this but this umpire needs to realize once you toss the player then that kid will now have to sit two games and will now not be able to play in a District Championship. How about a warning or just sitting him on the bench for a warning. I feel for this kid because he practiced and played all year and now will not be able to play in a game that is one of the biggest games of his career. It truly is a shame!
Really? You have a complaint about that. That was a Busch league move and will even get you tossed at the highest levels of the game. That’s an automatic.

Yes, it is truly a shame that the player would do something that idiotic to earn himself getting rung. Drawing a line in the dirt is an automatic ejection, no matter the level. The umpire does not need to realize that, the kid and his coach need to realize that. Even in the majors, where they have an extremely high tolerance, as soon as you draw a line you're getting tossed. This is the problem with today's society, no accountability whatsoever.
Bingo! And the sad thing is the excuse condoning the behavior

What impressed me the most about the young pups, in both championship games (vs Waverly, vs Unioto) ... They didn't commit an error. Not one. While that doesn't seem that impressive to most, if you watched the games you'd know Cornwell is not a strike out pitcher. He's crafty, but gives up hits and a lot of contact is made throughout.

Very proud of the Bulldogs team, players and coaching staff. In addition to the talent this young squad has as well as the skill they continue to build (majority of the team plays competitive summer ball and have for many years), there are intangibles that this group of kids have that can't be measured with numbers but are evident when you watch them play. They have a very high baseball IQ, and while many are athletic in other sports as well, baseball is a first love for most. Which means they don't just pay attention to baseball from February to May. They love it, watch it, study it, and work on it even during other sport seasons. When a team has a majority of those type of kids, they make tourney runs. We'll see them back at Wren often.
