So much rain and it's not even hurricane season yet!

Started our District Top Team Tournament last Friday night - got in the 6:00 games at two of the parks, late games rained out.
Double-Headers on Saturday - got in a few early games the rest were rained out.
Double-Headers on Sunday - all games rained out.
Tonight (Monday) Night games - all games rained out.
Tomorrow night - forecast is more rain!

We were originally scheduled to finish on Wednesday so families could have Memorial Day Weekend off, no way that can happen now!

I feel your pain Lou. I’m in a league in Seattle. Last year was the wettest winter/spring in the history of Seattle. It was brutal. On top of that, my league only has one turf field...every other field is dirt...in all places Seattle!

At one point late in the season, my managers and coaches were losing their minds and suggested that the league needed to find a way to get access to the University of Washington indoor practice facility/track. This season has been much better. Very little rain this spring.

We got lucky.
It stopped raining and we got everything in by Friday night.

On to All Stars, practices start next Saturday!

We are still in season, (about 40% left).
We have some teams that have had up to seven games rained out.
