The Kentucky State basbeall team was scheduled to play a doubleheader against Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday. Things got off to a good start for the KSU Thorobreds, as they scored the first run at the top of the first inning. Unfortunately, the EKU Colonels scored 22 in the bottom of the first - and 27 more in the next three innings to build up a 49-1 lead.
Feeling that a 48-run advantage was foolish enough on April Fools’ Day, both teams decided to stop the game after 4 1/2 innings - neither wanted this to turn into some kind of 100-0 Dallas Academy blowout. And forget about playing two. (Sorry, Ernie Banks.)
