2019 State Tournament Location

Last year, the vote passed to extend the high school baseball season by 1 week. While at the 2018 State Baseball Tournament, the buzz was that Huntington Park was already (partially) booked for June 6-8 of the following year and that the 2019 State Baseball Tournament had to be held somewhere else. Has anyone heard any new info on this?

^^ Details on the State Tournament Coverage page (Arena District Parking Map, etc.) allude to the games being played at Huntington Park, but those could just be leftover (non-updated) from prior year's tournament coverage pages.

I would assume that Ohio State's field would be available if necessary at that time.

Maybe they could bring the state championships to the Akron Rubber Ducks stadium and have both the baseball and softball in the same city.

In the past, Ohio State wouldn't have worked because Track & Field would have been going on at the same time, and the parking would have been an absolute nightmare. But with baseball being pushed back a week, it's a viable option.

I mentioned Ohio State to my wife (she and I have gone to the state tournament each of the last 9 years), so she looked it up and saw that most the seats are bleachers. She is not at all thrilled and actually said she wouldn't go (I can't blame her). While I think the size of the stadium would be sufficient and provide a more intimate setting, the bleachers are a total buzzkill for those of us who spend 3 full days watching all 12 games.

For that reason, Canal Park (Rubber Ducks) as you mentioned, would be a great option. However, they, too, have a home game on Thursday of that week.

Would you, or your wife, been wearing purple at last year's state tourney by chance?

Don't like the Akron thing at all. Find a way to keep it in Columbus. Ohio State is a good venue and I want to say there are regular seats there as well.

Yes, there was probably at least 1 of 3 days that we both wore purple. Typically we sit in the last 3-4 rows of a section (behind 3rd base for first game, behind 1st base for last 3 games to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible), and we keep book for all 12 games, so we're easy to spot. There is a gentleman from Paulding (maroon shirt) and his brother who normally sit close to us, and us to them.

Yes, the lower bowl of Bill Davis Stadium (Ohio State) has regular seats. The upper bowl is bleachers.

Then we were by you last year then.

Small world.


Hoping it works out for central ohio. Just makes it more central and plus there is a lot to do in Columbus. Akron........akron?

It looks like @CLBClippers (Huntington Park) have home games for the whole weekend June 6-8, and @AkronRubberDuck (Canal Park) have a home game Thursday, June 6. Obviously Bill Davis Stadium (Ohio State) is an option. Just curious of any ongoing discussions or decisions.
We'll see if Mr. Snodgrass or someone else replies with any more information.

Per Defiance head coach Tom Held: "We are still in the process of finalizing the location."

They have to be trying to work with Clippers/MiLB to move that series, if at all possible. Huntington Park is the best venue. Moving the postseason back was sure bring some hurdles, but was the correct decision.
