I give the folks at Southside credit, the people there did all they could do make the tournament good.

The other posters aren't joking though, that field is way to small. Line drives and popups leaving the park, ridiculous.

The umpires were flat awful during the games I watched. I bet the strike zone was the size of a coke can during one of them. The ump even joked he couldn't see the plate at one time, and then got into a verbal altercation with an entire side of fans. Awful.

This is the reward for playing hard all year, playing on a little league field with terrible umps so that the AAA can make the most money possible. No wonder nobody cares about high school baseball anymore, its awful all the way around.

If you want to see it for yourself, go watch a couple of games.
The crew at Southside do need to be commended for their hard work--they were up against it with the weather and did a great job keeping things rolling...they worked hard and congrats to them for that hard work.  Most of the umps I saw weren't awful, but we did get one with a coke can zone..he squeezed one of our pitchers pretty bad, but it went both ways, so it was fair bad on both sides...good job to Southside staff though..

Shiloh is good and they are loaded with talent, but they got lucky in a couple of the regional games.

Iíll take that kind of luck. One Shilo dude was lucky enough to hit two balls out of the park today, it appears. And their two pitchers were lucky enough to only allow 4 hits in the semifinal game.

Maybe the Scrappers will be luckier.

 I live in NEA so itís natural for me to pull for the teams in my area. I could be wrong but I believe that this will be 3 years in a roll for these 2 teams to meet in the finals. Thatís dang impressive and for Nashville to have a shot at a 3peat as a public school deserves a tip of the hat!! Congrats and good luck to both.

Nashville doesnít need luck to beat Shiloh. Will this be fluke #3?

Why so truly upset over my comment? Maybe you need to re-read it?

Not upset at all, BB.  I donít have a dog in the fight, really, other than I picked Shilo to win it all a while back. I was somewhat sarcastically pointing out that I was right when I said ďShilo just got hot,Ē but you attributed their wins partially to luck.

At the time of my original comment, 2 regional wins were 100% luck...OK maybe 98.5%
You make it sound like I'm bashing SC, but far from it. Its like you cherry pick part of my comment to fit your narrative, just like the MSM   :D ??? :-X


BTW...I hope they win Friday too.  :o

No problem, I'm not a VV fan.
Personally I believe all State games should be played on college fields.

I wondered when I kept seeing all these HRs. That's how big our Babe Ruth Field is.

This is the whole thing in a nutshell---90% of the homers in the regional and state wouldn't have been Hr's on a regular field....Baum will be a different animal, but SC does have a couple of guys that can cause ball not to hit bats or hit them poorly...Nashville will have to hit the ball or the same result as the last two teams that saw these 2 guys from SC...It comes down to pitching---always does.

That looked like one heck of a pitching duel. Congrats to Nashville.
Williams kid should hold his head high after that outing. 12K's in a championship is something to be proud of!

Great game. Definitely a pitchersí duel. I was pulling for Shilo, but for that young man to hit his only home run EVER in that situation off D1 pitching was incredible to watch. Congrats to both teams. Solid baseball.
