Note on Saturday Night's "Rainout"

It wasn't.

I remember looking at my watch and seeing it was nearing 9pm when we dashed for our cars through the rain. At this point, we'd been standing around under cover for at least a half hour.

The game resumed at 9:40pm after the storms rolled on out.

So those tickets we all bought aren't any good. I'm mildly annoyed at the length of the delay, because by then most everybody had to have left the stadium. Then again, I realize that minor league teams probably have a razor thin profit margin and will do most anything to avoid rainouts. Oh well, at least we got to see a good inning and a half of baseball.

Had a similar experience at a Red Sox game as a kid. We wound up watching the game on my at my aunts house and saw a Yazstremski foul ball land pretty close to where we had been sitting.

The beauty of minor/independent league games is that if you stick around long enough in rain delays they start handing you free passes to other games.

Found that out the hard way.

Sorry that the tickets are no good. Oh, well. Guess you'll just hafta pay up and do it agin!
