Keller Baseball made the playoffs for the 8th straight year the other night, but it looks like it will be awhile before the Indians play again.
Cleburne School District (Just south of Ft. Worth) has closed for the week.
UPDATE: The UIL, in all their wisdom has released the Baseball Playoff Schedule:
District Certification May 19
Bi District Deadline May 23 (1 game or 2 out of 3)
Area Deadline May 26 (1 game only)
Regional Quarterfinal Deadline May 30 (1 game or 2 out of 3)
Regional Semifinal Deadline June 2 (1 game only)
Regional Final Deadline June 6 (1 game or 2 out of 3)
State Tournament June 10-13
Couple of thoughts, if this was Football, would they be doing this? Secondly, why are they just postponing UIL events, why not close down the schools if there is such danger. And Third, changing the playoff rounds to one game is going to give the teams with an ace the advantage. I haven’t decided if this is good or bad for the Indians. My initial thought would be bad, because every year Coach Stramp always has a few cards up his sleeve come playoff time.
UPDATE #2: A troublmaking reader emails; “If they can postpone baseball games, why aren’t they postponing the School Board Election?” (ed – that’s a joke folks, you can quit emailing me about it)
UPDATE #3: Shannon just text messaged me at work and said all Ft. Worth School are being closed.
