Softball state triple play

If I had to cover three state softball championship games, I couldn't think of a better facility to do it in.

While most of the state facilities are professional or college sites, the softball games at Ben Davis High School are on a prep campus.

But the set up and the fields are great and the hospitality has already been top-notch (with a golf cart ride to the right gate).

Lakewood Park has the Class A title game at 10:30 a.m., Adams Central in the 2A title game at 12:30 p.m. and Huntington North at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

A long day, indeed, but one done at a first-class place - Ben Davis.
