Baseball is huge in the South and I am getting the feeling that it is not so much in the North, probably with the weather playing a large roll in that differential too.

As for areas to live, I am looking into Blue Ash and some of the other suggestions. They are all much appreciated. Can anyone weigh in on the inflation of list vs sales prices in the area? I have heard a lot of people say that up there people inflate their asking price. Just curious for your thoughts on this. So far our agent has only sent us stuff at the very top of our price range and I am not sure if she really thinks we can get the price down or what.

Thanks!
Cincinnati is a baseball town. I don't think I know a single person that does not have at least one Reds article of clothing and people follow the team religiously. In fact, many students skip school on opening day to partake in the festivities.

That being said, at the high school level baseball probably is not as big as it is in GA. Lacrosse has made huge in roads here and is continuing to grow rapidly. At my high school more people went to lacrosse games than baseball games so I don't know if baseball is the same level as high school football, which is a religion here.

I think every kid growing up in Cincinnati has played on some type of baseball team, while much fewer have played football and even fewer have played lacrosse. I don't think anyone attends high-school baseball games unless you are one of the top teams and playing an important game. Lacrosse might have a slightly better turnout, but Ohio high school football is about as big as anywhere else (not including Texas).

I seldom read anything about HS lacrosse. I do read quite a bit about HS soccer, both girls and boys. The main reason why HS baseball is so woefully unattended, and also soccer, is due to when the games are played, afternoons and during the week. Compared to the Friday Night lock on HS football under the lights there is no comparisson far as fan ability to attend the games. I agree the only place where HS football has a more fanatical following is Texas. This is also attested to by how many of the big time colleges recruit heavily in the Cincinnati area.

HS soccer is gradually gaining more popularity, but considering how many participate in the youth soccer programs, far more than pee-wee football or little league baseball, soccer drops off at the high school level. School baseball teams also suffer due to the desire to get the season concluded by the time school lets out for the summer. With our often wet springs this makes for a short season.

I go to Moeller, and I agree with this.

Blue Ash all the way, or Montgomery (same area).

If you guys are looking at Eagles Point in Loveland, then you can afford Blue Ash/Montgomery.

You are dead on about the attendance for high school baseball. They are poorly attended because they are played are immediately after school on a weekday, but it is still a big deal here in Cincy. You'll get huge crowds even at those bad times for the elite programs like Elder and Moeller. Their Regional Final game last year at UC was sold out and people were standing outside the stadium just to watch and it was like a 5 PM game during the week.

OP,

Cincinnati has a plethora of highly competitive traveling baseball teams. I played for a very high level traveling team out of Dayton and we were constantly running into teams from Cincinnati. I am 31 so it has been a little while since I've played but these two were excellent organizations when I played.

Midland Redskins

Storm Club Baseball

Also, here is a list of teams in a select league in Cincinnati.

Cincinnati is a huge baseball town and the talent is excellent at all levels. I am sure you will be satisfied once you make inroads with a program.
