Here we are six plus weeks into the high school season, and yesterday was the first game I have had canceled in total due to wet weather/grounds. 32 games in, even with my late start, and just two of those were postponed, but those after getting started, one in the 5th and another, last Saturday, in the 2nd....last night it wasn't to be. Crestview called and canceled the contest at around 3pm....it was a good thing too. We had three major storms pound the area, and on top of the rain we received late Monday(after my game at LCC was completed), I say our "mini drought" is over, at least for now.
My old buddy Jim, who I work with next week at the Crestview D4 Sectional Tourney, and I have the completion of a game tonight at Lima Perry...how long it lasts I don't have a clue....the game was suspended because of darkness a couple of weeks ago, with Perry and Waynesfield tied going into the top of the 12th.....so we may be around for an inning, two, five...we just don't know, but with a 5pm start, we should be able to finish it before dark.
The strange Spring weather meanwhile will continue. Saturday we had 40 degrees, with some rain, sleet, and snow, at Paulding....today we are looking for possible record highs, and it may reach 90...they are forecasting 88 with a 30% chance of storms. Tomorrow, Garry and I will head to Crestview, where LCC and the home squad will settle the NWC Championship. Lima Central Catholic has clinched a share of the title, but Crestview can earn a piece if they defeat the visiting Thunderbirds tomorrow. I will work the plate for that one....
Personal Planting Gets Going___
That will do it for now....back later>>>>
Photos-Wet Baseballs and Diamonds have been rare so far this Spring Season....but look for those conditions to increase as we head for Tournament time.....and with my planting beginning yesterday, hopefully this years flower crop will equal or better last seasons.
