It's really pointless and really.....just pointless. And here's why. FROM A PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE!!!
Schools usually play their district ball games around 6/6:30 local. Seven-inning game, it probably will be done about 8:15-8:30 local time. The road team will probably go find a place to go eat after, the home team (players) will probably get something to-go and take it home, eat at home, or just grab something from the concession stand (it just depends).
If the road team gets something to eat, then they're leaving that town when the home team players are probably at home. An hour plus drive puts the road team at a serious disadvantage, especially if their school starts at an earlier time than the opposing team.
Example: Hardin County is playing at Munford tonight. The difference between Hardin County High School and Munford High School is a 2 hour and 12 minute drive. 6:30 start time, 7 innings, game finished about 8:15-8:30 or even later. It'll probably be near 9:15 PM when Hardin County leaves Munford. 2 hour+ drive, it won't be until midnight when Hardin County players get some sleep, but the Munford players (if they're smart) should be in bed by 10:45 the latest. And we all know that an hour plus of sleep is important. Both teams play at Hardin County on Tuesday the 4th. It won't effect Munford as much because they probably won't have a game on Wednesday.
I'm making an excuse but it is something that we should considered. How can you manage your time and understand that rest is important, especially with High School athletes. Besides, it's baseball! You're going to lose to teams that you shouldn't lose to and you will win against teams that you probably shouldn't beat. That's why I laugh at these rankings, especially for baseball.
