The headline on the NBC15 news story last spring was “Mother Nature continues to rain on baseball parades…” And as we have seen on six days already during the first three weeks of Fall Ball, that headline, unfortunately, still applies.
After an unusually harsh winter and all the challenges that brought to getting ready for spring season Opening Day at WMLL, we’re now stuck in a wet weather pattern that has us off to a very wet start for the 2014 Fall Ball season.
In case you missed Kristin Mazur’s report last spring, you can watch the video here featuring WMLL’s Paul Zwaska (who oversees the WMLL grounds for the Board), as the story still applies this fall. While it’s been awfully wet, at least we are fortunate it hasn’t been severe. When there’s a break in the weather, you can bet the WMLL Grounds Crew with Head Groundskeeper Johnny Annis will do everything they can to have us back to playing ball as soon as possible.
Here’s to sunshine, dry fields, and baseball! (fingers crossed for the rest of the fall season).
