Rain, rain go away
The only problem is that the state tournament for baseball and softball opens on Tuesday, and if there's significant rain that forces postponements, it could put teams in a serious bind.
Especially the baseball teams.
District semifinals and finals are Saturday, so if teams can't play on Tuesday or Wednesday and have to make games up on Thursday or Friday, then teams who have to play pre-district games would have their pitching staff's seriously hampered.
If a team ace has to pitch in a pre-district played Thursday or Friday, there's no way that pitcher could go on Saturday, unless it was for an inning or two of relief.
Knowing that, teams that play in pre-district games better be praying for no rain today.
- Regardless of whether it rains or not, Rochester and Troy Athens will still play their girls soccer pre-district Tuesday night at Athens. It's too bad two of the area's have to meet in the earliest round of the playoffs, but it should make for some good theatre right off the bat.
