High school baseball team wins 65-0 in just 3 innings

LINK

quote:

Licking Heights High baseball team routed Columbus (Oh.) Harvest Prep High by a final score of 65-0. The game was halted after three innings, by which point Licking Heights already had accumulated 48 hits, 13 walks and a troubling 11 hit batsmen.

The Hornets scored 16 runs in the first inning, 18 runs in the second and 31 in the third. Harvest Prep scored no runs at all.

The girls softball team got the baseball team's schedule. Throwing lobs to home plate explains everything

I think 34-0 should have been enough to invoke the skunk rule.

This doesn't really sound to crazy. stupid for the other coach not to forfeit early though. When I was in high school, we played Clinton, st Helena, Jackson (district games) and the games we sometimes stopped after it was 20-0 and we were pretty much getting out on our own. Some of the teams were just really bad. I felt bad for them

They should have started bunting for outs and/or just swinging to miss on purpose. As a player I would have gotten bored and wanted it to end.

I can't even imagine a scenario where this could happen in baseball. People make what would be outs in BP before scoring 34 would be possible...

"We didn't run on passed balls; we didn't take extra bases or any of those kinds of things," Boyer said. "I even asked the umpire, 'What do you want us to do?'


48 hits + 13 walks + 11 hbp = 72 batters on base. 6 outs (since it was the 3rd inning) and 65 runs leaves ONE unaccounted for batter. So either 1 out in the 3rd, or 1 left on base when the umps finally called it.

Either they were smashing home runs left and right or the coach has a different definition of "taking extra bases" to end up with at most one player left on base.

But damn, how bad does that other team have to be? You'd figure even the worst team would accidentally get 3 outs before 31 runs were scored in an inning.

eta: possibly missing errors here though I'm sure the scorekeepers fell asleep after the first so there might not have been any

This is shameful to put a losing team thru this. There is no telling what the circumstances are for the losing team.

Well, no shite. If they did it wouldn't have ended up 65-0

I would bet that they were taking extra bases and running on passed balls in the first inning, then after that they stopped because it was so sad.

Where did you go? EHS, U-High, Dunham, Christian Life, or Redemptorist?

That was my old district, so this sticks out to me.

I am surprised it took someone this long to mention it...

Licking Heights? What the hell is that?

Yea we had games in high school where we'd get ridiculous leads in order to be picked off in purpose. Some teams were insanely terrible. I remember one guy ended up being all three outs in the inning, he got some serious shite

Well, Warren Morris once made 2 of the 3 LSU outs in an 18 run inning vs. Georgia Tech.

He would later make up for it in the CWS though...

I see that you are a Miami fan...sorry if "too soon"
