March finally here, where's the softball weather! We haven't played since February 14th....we haven't even been outdoors with all the messy wintry weather....it's been an Arctic Blast hit, and trust me has not been a blast at all. My field completely snow covered and has been since February 16th or so...right when we were getting a break with melting snow, then boom, February 28th snow storm hit again...4-5 inches back on my field...can't see the dirt or even outfield grass...time for this stuff to LEAVE, go away!
We will TRY to play games this week though probably at the Springfield park (either Killian or Cooper)....the park fields drain, dry, and get ready much quicker than my campus field. So let the melting begin, let the rains come and wash it away, and let the SUN come out and do its thing.
Our schedule for this first week of March should the weather cooperate, is this:
Friday March 6 - we hope to play at the park with 3 other teams joining us (Oklahoma Wesleyan, Grandview, Lyon)...if we can play, we are shooting for game times of 12:00, 2:00, 4:00. that is to be determined if the fields are dry enough to play...if we cannot play 3 games, then we will all play 2 games each, probably at 2:00 & 4:00...stay tuned to the website for more updates by Thursday March 5.
Then on Saturday March 7, it will be 3 teams playing (Evangel, Grandview, Lyon)...again, we are trying to get either the park field ready IF our campus field is not playable...to be determined...those Saturday game times would be: 10:00, 12:00, 2:00.
Stay tuned to the website for more info and up to date game schedule. We are trying hard to play these games if ol' man winter will take a break on us. The sunshine is expected to come out on Friday & Saturday with 50's weather....but it will depend on IF the field conditions from all the snow & ice dries out for us to give us a playable field.
Till next time, keep the faith & keep up with Crusaders Softball!
