Game Halted In 13th To Be Ended Monday

May 07, 1991

Northeast (17-0) and Old Mill (12-4) will complete April 19's controversial suspended game, with Old Mill leading 6-5 in the top of the 13th inning, at 3:45 p.m. Monday at Northeast High.

In what was thefirst high school game played at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmons, Old Mill took the 6-5 lead on a controversial play at home plate that resulted in an argument between Northeast coach Harry Lentz and home plate umpire Warren Williams. Stadium supervisor Barry McGraw then enforced an agreed-upon curfew and halted play.

The discussion was over Old Mill runner Phil McGinnis and whetherhe touched home on his initial slide or missed the plate and was assisted back by a teammate, which could result in his being called out.

On Monday, the game, which is more important to Class 4A Old Millin terms of playoff seedings (2A Northeast already has sealed top seed in its region), will resume with two outs in the top of the 13th, Old Mill batting with no one on and leading by a run.

Old Mill started this week with 87 playoff points, in third place in Region IV behind Severna Park (93) and Arundel (92).
