2021 Week 3 (Ohio & Indiana)

2021 Week 3 (Ohio & Indiana)

Week 3 was a long awaited return to Indiana for myself. After COVID had restricted opportunities to visit the Hoosier State, a trip back to Muncie for the CIC Day was circled on the calendar the moment we saw it posted on the schedule.

The CIC Day is when all four league games of the Central Indiana Conference are played at Scheumann Stadium, the home stadium of Ball State in Muncie, Indiana. With that, came finding games to go with it. And an obvious one was on the docket: Delta hosting Yorktown. Continue reading “2021 Week 3 (Ohio & Indiana)”

2021 Week 1 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)

2021 Week 1 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)

This week was supposed to be much different than what it turned out. I had planned a weekend in New Jersey for the 11-game Battle at the Beach in Ocean City. I had arrangements made a few months in advance and had a great rate for a hotel to make it worthwhile. However, while in Georgia, the hotel cancelled my reservation.

Then, there’s things unrelated to scheduling and travel. Such, as a brand new camera failing right before a game. But, I’ll get to that.

So, the week started easily enough. For Thursday, the only real option was to head to Ohio. Columbus had three Thursday night ‘playoff’ games in the Columbus City League. Continue reading “2020 Week 10 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)”

2020 Week 8 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)

2020 Week 8 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)

Things had gotten a little more relaxed this week. For one, Pennsylvania had relaxed their stringent restrictions on attendance. Which made the old 250 limit no more. It was nice being at a game in PA with what could be called a ‘crowd’ for a game. But, with all the restrictions, I didn’t look for much of the Pennsylvania games earlier in the week.
