Lake County 2009 Schedule

Not that this has anything to do with prospects per se, but does anyone have any idea as to why Lake County changed the time of the games there to 6:30? It seems like an unusual starting time and from what I remember, the start times last year were 7:00.

Sounds like a question for Tony.

While we are at it, are there any clubs on the Lake County home schedule that fans of prospects should circle in order to see someone special on the other club??

Good question. Looking at the schedule, it looks to be more for the April/May games as they go back to 7pm in June and later. I will ask, but I am almost certain this is for the kids who are in school. Bumping up the start time a half hour gets them home a half hour earlier and may be more inviting to some parents.

Could also be weather. Still chilly in April and May. Extra half hour isn't much, but more daylight and more warmer weather......

Just a thought though, could have nothing to do with it.....

The kids idea sounds pretty plausible.

It also gives the chance of playing in a little warmer temperatures and in the sunlight. I don't see why they don't start those earlier games at 6 pm. 6:30 or 7:00 seems a little late if you are going to eat at the park whereas 6 pm means you can combine dinner and game more easily.

I do not remember the configuration of the park but I can't believe that it would be a sun-related issue to start all the games at 6:30. I know I attended a couple of twi-night doubleheaders there in recent years and I don't remember it being such a sun issue that I noticed the players having trouble seeing, but my memory could be wrong on that.

If only the Captains had such a problem that more people would show up if the games started at a particular time, now THAT would be a problem.
