The OHSAA voted to move the HS Baseball State Championships to Canal Park in Akron in 2019. This move was necessary was necessary because of a scheduling conflict with Huntington Park in Columbus. I am not sure if this is a one year stop gap solution, But there are several fine minor league facilities in the State of Ohio that could host this tournament on a rotating basis.
Canal Park - Akron
Thurman Munson Stadium - Canton
5/3 Field - Toledo
5/3 Field - Dayton
University of Cincinnati
Eastwood Field - Mahoning Valley Scrappers
Classic Park - Lake County Captains
and the current site -
Huntington Park - Columbus
That is eight viable sites around the state. If this were to happen, I bet that those barking about the extended travel one year may quiet down as they would know in a few years it would be in their backyard.
But with the baseball news is just as big - the Football State Championships will remain at Tom Benson Stadium - at least for 2019. That stadium still takes my breath away.
