Rains causes more postponements

NATCHEZ — Local and area baseball and softball coaches are probably tired of having cold fronts with bad weather associated with them coming through the Miss-Lou every three or four days.

Another one came through Monday afternoon with yet another bout of heavy rain, lightning and possibly some hail. That forced both Vidalia’s baseball and softball games to be postponed.

Vidalia’s junior varsity and varsity softball teams were scheduled to host Bolton in LHSAA District 3-3A action. Now the two teams will meet at 5:30 p.m. today with only the varsity game taking place.

Vidalia’s baseball team was to host Block in non-district action, but the rain washed out both the JV and varsity games.

“We’re pretty much done for the day,” Vikings head coach Tim Herndon said.

Herndon said the games are tentatively rescheduled for today. However, Herndon added that if it rained too much Monday afternoon, the games could end up taking place on Wednesday. Either way, the JV game will take place at 4 p.m. and the varsity game will follow at 6 p.m.

“You’ve gotta have 20 in-state opponents to be eligible for the playoffs (in the LHSAA). The game against Cathedral doesn’t matter to them,” Herndon said.

Another local coach who is frustrated about his games being postponed due to the weather is Green Wave head coach Craig Beesley. Cathedral’s JV and varsity games against Amite School Center of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MAIS) at Liberty were rained out.

Cathedral and Amite School Center will play each other today in a varsity doubleheader at Chester Willis Field with the first game beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Trinity Episcopal was supposed to travel to Centreville Academy for a varsity doubleheader with the Tigers starting at 4:30 p.m. However, that was changed to just one varsity game at 6 p.m. – weather permitting.
