Smarter scheduling needed
Kosmo's big question is why many of these games have been scheduled in the first place.
Now, that statement doesn't apply to soccer and lacrosse teams who can play in bad weather and need to get their season going.
But why were there so many baseball and softball games scheduled, particularly before Spring Break next week?
The AD's and coaches have to know that even late March is just an extension of winter, and even though spring is the shortest of the three high school seasons, what's wrong with backlogging a schedule and playing more games in late April and May when the weather is nicer?
What's the big hurry to start the season after March 21?
Waiting until April or May certainly beats hoping and praying that the weather will be nice in late March and then being forced to reschedule when winter still ends up rearing its ugly head.
— Look in the Oakland Press in the next week for a bunch of all-county teams from winter sports. It'll be a nice way to wrap up the winter season by honoring kids who deserve such recognition.
