Conner Dugout Damaged during last night's storms
Saw this earlier this morning as a result of the storms that came through last night. This is at Conner HS.

Mar 15, 19, 07:15 AM #2Looks like the wind took the roof off, and the roof damaged the top couple of courses if cinder blocks and the fence in the process of flying into the parking lot. With one side of the structure completely wide open the way it is, I guess it just turns the dugout into a giant windsock if the wind is coming from the right direction.
That's a big bummer for Arlo and the Cougars, but I wouldn't assume the structure is any danger to players sitting on the bench inside once they get rid of the debris and pull off any loosened or failed cinder blocks from the tops of the walls.
In my home building days, I always used to question how necessary hurricane ties were (metal strips that fasten the roof trusses to the framing of the walls) when it came to reinforcing houses built in Greater Cincinnati. I guess this basically answers that question.

Stinks about the dugout, but it could have been a lot worse.

(I think there's also a good chance that whatever the deductible was on the insurance policy may well have been somewhere close to or even more than whatever the actual rebuild cost is for the dugout roof.)
