Regional baseball tournaments at Grove and Sperry were postponed today due to continued rain.
“We're moving everything back another day,” Grove athletic director Jimmy Johnson said today just after 8 a.m. “We're getting a hard rain right now. At least we've got a tarp on the field.
“If we can survive and it moves on out, maybe we'll get started tomorrow,” Johnson said.
As has been the case at most other locations around northeastern Oklahoma, play originally was to have begun Wednesday, then bumped back to today.
Once play begins, Grove faces Fort Gibson in the opener while Miami tackles Oologah at Jim Beauchamp Field.
Wyandotte was scheduled to face host Sperry in the first round of a 3A regional.
“They are going to push it back to tomorrow and see what happens,” Wyandotte coach Troy Gray said.
Caney Valley and Adair play in the other first-round contest at Sperry.
Rain was expected to continue through today. There's only a 20 percent chance of rain on Friday. The forecast for Saturday is for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the 80s.
Despite having rain in the forecast, play in the state softball tournaments were to get under way today in Norman and Oklahoma City.
