[April 19, 2013]  The Lincoln baseball tournament games for Friday have been canceled due to weather.

LCHS has revised the game schedule for Saturday as follows.

  • 10 a.m. -- Streator vs. Metamora

  • Noon -- Streator vs. Lincoln

  • 2 p.m. -- Metamora vs. Edwardsville

  • 4 p.m. -- Lincoln vs. Edwardsville

Because there is no night lighting on the fields, games will be limited to an hour and 45 minutes. At the end of the time limit, teams will be allowed to finish the current inning; then the game will be called.

In addition, due to the change of schedule, teams will not be able to take a full infield-outfield warm-up before the final three games. Teams can play catch off to the side and use batting cages for warm-ups.

  4. Most total strikeouts by your pitching staff

  5. Fewest total strikeouts by your hitters
