We have a plan!! The Patterson diamonds still have water laying on them so they won’t be opened tonight so we are going to play on 2 diamonds at the old St. Joe’s school on 2nd ave south east. They are not the best around but at least we can get out for a little bit. We will decide amongst the coaches how we are going to make this work once we get out there and see just how much room we have to work with. Dawn will run to Patterson and pick up bats and balls and see what she can find for bases. see you all tonight.
Diamonds are dry! SCMB scheduled baseball will go as scheduled for May 24.
Due to the wet weather, we will be cancelling Rally-Cap for today. Try again on Wednesday
Please take note that all baseball is cancelled for May 10th
