After tonight's third game against the Outlaws, the Armada will bus home, arriving early Monday morning only to leave most likely on Tuesday for a trip to Reno. My question is why not have the team just go to Reno early, get a little rest and be ready to play, instead of an additional 17+ hours of riding a bus?
Originally there was talk that the team would leave for Reno early Wednesday morning to arrive later in the day for a game. That's more than an 8.5 hour bus ride, not including stops. That's a good recipe for a tired team.
I will throw this bone to the GBL schedule-makers: it's tough to build a decent schedule for both LB and the OC Flyers because they use stadiums that often host college playoff baseball (Blair and Goodwin Fields). As a result, neither team can start their home schedule until the season is well underway.
After the upcoming Reno-to-Chico-to-Reno trip this week, the Armada schedule will settle down the rest of the season.
