(6-13-19) OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass gave a direct answer to a Coldwater baseball player on baseball facilities in a tweet from his comments about playing at Huntington Park. The Cavs won the D III OHSAA State Baseball Championship on Sunday, last season Coldwater played in the D III State finals. Both games were played at different venues. Huntington Park in Columbus hosted the 2018 championships and Canal Park in Akron hosted this year.
The tweet below is from Coldwater player Payton Goodwin that is a poll that simply states – (the poll is still open to vote on)
- Huntington Park
- Canal Park

Another Coldwater player Cole Frilling tweeted his answer on the poll-
The move to Akron did cause a stir among some Ohio baseball coaches. The OHSAA Executive Director has in recent months been very ‘defensive‘ of venue selections of several OHSAA state champions.
Other tweet replied to about the baseball venue –
Nearly all tournament sites are dependent on many things – the greates overriding factor is availability. Sites that are not available simply are not options to be able to be used. Other factors also play a role. Not as simple as saying “we want to go there”. Just fact https://t.co/Uf1NADljGt
