Share this post

The Hobart vs. Highland game to begin the High School Challenge will be played at 4:30 p.m. today as scheduled. However,  Matt Frieman, Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations for the South Shore Railcats says the second game of the doubleheader, Calumet vs. Hebron, has been postponed and a make-up date has not been announced. 
No reason was given as to why the second game has been postponed. 
According to the Railcats website, the High School Challenge is a unique opportunity for high school players and coaches from Indiana and Illinois to play a game at beautiful U. S. Steel Yard. The teams also raise money for their school by selling tickets to their game. Fans may purchase tickets by contacting the individual schools or at the gate on the day of the games.
The High School Challenge has been a memorable experience since 2003, when Lowell's Ryan Basham hit the first home run in the history of the ballpark, according to the site.
The 11th Annual High School Challenge, Presented by McDonald's, Bosak and BSN Sports will welcome 36 teams, playing 18 games in a span of 11 days from April 1-20 at U. S. Steel Yard.
