OVC Baseball Tournament coming to Marion in 2019 and 2020

The Ohio Valley Conference Board of Directors of Athletics have approved a plan to move the OVC Baseball Championship to Marion, Illinois for the next two years, beginning with the 2019 season.

The first of those eight-team tournaments will be held May 21-26 at Rent One Park.

The 2018 season marked the 40th year the OVC Baseball Championship had been held. The first elimination style tournament was held in 1980, most usually being played at the site of the regular season champion. Beginning in 2001 the tournament switched to a neutral site for the first time, with nine championships (2001-09) being held at Brooks Stadium in Paducah, Kentucky, followed by seven years (2010-16) at the Ballpark in Jackson in Jackson, Tennessee. The past two years (2017-18), the event was held at Choccolocco Park in Oxford, Alabama.

Hmm. :scratch

It's almost as if there's two schools in this state that are in the conference and we've had at least a few posters on here over the year, including myself, who are alumni of OVC schools.

Don’t follow baseball but like keeping up with Chicago St, EIU, WIU, SIUE, etc.

EIU/SIUE don’t have forums, and EIU/WIU have some fans here, so it’s helpful to streamline discussion here.

I’ll make a couple trips to Lantz if they’re before/after UI or ISUb games. Ditto Western if timing works with a BU game.

You asked. I answered. You have a problem with it, don't read it.

I have no problem with it whatsoever. I just find it comical that you think people from the Journal Star area care about EIU or Springfield area high schools. But if you feel like talking to yourself on here, go for it, I guess.

I've been on here quite a bit longer than you and one of the more respected posters on these boards. No one else has brought up either of these issues that you have.

Did I miss the thread containing most respected poster poll?
This is imported Italian nylon and it's a special edition limited silk print and it was done by this really famous design artist.

Better check again. Never said I was the most respected. Said I was one of the more respected. Big difference.

Never was awarded anything. Was talking more in terms of longevity. But hey, keep trying.
