For the first time since late March, and the last until late July...no baseball for me. The State is down to it's Regional Finals so just another week(8 days) to go and then it's on to ACME and American Legion ball.
Actually I do have a game scheduled for tomorrow...but that ain't gonna happen...I am scheduled to do a AMCE(Summer High School Baseball) game at Delphos Jefferson tomorrow at noon...BUT! Jefferson won their Regional Semi-Final yesterday and will be playing for the right to go to the final 4 in Division IV tomorrow...Good luck to the Wildcats..that program has come a long way the past 5 years or so...also left from my area is Coldwater, the Cavs in baseball, like football(where they won a state crown last fall), have been a dynasty, although they have not won a State Title since the 1990s...they are always there, they take on Marion Pleasant today for the Division III Regional Championship.....
On the Girls Softball side, The Celina Lady Bulldogs won their game 10-0 yesterday, and play tomorrow for the D-2 Regional Championship...and Rockford Parkway was a 5-0 winner in D-4, and play tomorrow as well, for the right to go to State.....good luck to all those kids.
Hal is back working at Celina Moving until Grad School starts in September. He is in Indiana today, stops by tonight for a change and a bite to eat, then heads out later for New York City, and a couple of jobs there....Sam is somewhere(Cincinnati I think), and then heads for Chicago to take in a Cubs game this weekend....needless to say, it's been kind of quite around the old homestead....yard work yesterday, waiting to see what the weather(storms in the forecast for tonight) brings up before I make any outdoor plans tonight.
On a sad note...after naming my favorite movies...Harvy Korman of Blazing Saddles and "The Carol Brunett Show" fame, passed away at 81....I'll always remember him as "Hedly Lamar", the evil sidekick of "Governor" Mel Brooks in "Saddles"...what a great cast and movie(see last entry) that was.
Have a great weekend to all.....back later>>>>>>>>>>>>>
