Directions To Away Games Spring 2002

 

Most baseball diamonds are at the same location as the high school.  Schools who play games on diamonds that are not at the same location as the high school are marked with ***.  The links on the each name in this directions page and on the schedule page will take you to the IHSA site which has a direct link to the school on Yahoo Maps.

 

School Name (Clicking on name will take you to a yahoo map of the community, clicking on driving directions and then entering your zip will give you maps and driving directions)  Note: more often than not the Yahoo directions are great, however in a few cases the directions are strange and in the case of Meridian wrong!?
