Just time for a quick "Hey" this morning....Sam is home and we are scheduled to work a game this morning at Lincolnview. This is the only game we are to work together during the Regular Season...we do have a Sectional Tournament Double Header May 8th, some 100 miles north of here at Hopewell-Loudon High School in Bascom, Ohio. This will be the 3rd consecutive year we will work this tournament...maybe the last, with Sam being down at Columbus, pretty much on a full time basis until he graduates in (hopefully) the Spring of 2012.

Yesterday, got the lawn mowed while it was still warm, then the wind and clouds picked up, and some areas got plenty of rain...both Celina and my game site of Bellefontaine remained relatively dry...although with the 15 degree drop in temps and the 40 mph winds did not make for ideal playing or umpiring conditions.

The Game? Well the homestanding Chieftains put up a 10 spot in the first inning, and ran away from Visiting Greenon by a count of 26-1 in a game that was halted via the run rule after 4 1/2 innings. Bellefontaine had defeated Greenon earlier in the season by a county of 17-4...43-5 were the season totals, in favor of Mark Brunswick's team...Mark was out with the flu yesterday however, and missed to carnage.

Off to Lincolnview...back later
