And the game has been officially postponed. The rain wouldn’t let up, and the teams will play two seven-inning games tomorrow starting at 12pm. I’ll be back to fill you in on those games. Sorry to disappoint any who were really looking forward to reading about some Saturday afternoon baseball. But check back here tomorrow at noon, and I promise to make it up to you, barring any unreasonably high expectations.
It’s been about a thirty-minute delay now, and the players on both teams are growing restless. They’ve resorted to a new method of competition: they’re writing messages on baseballs and tossing the balls back and forth to the opposing dugout. It’s like instant messaging without electronics. Got to love old-school communication.
Looking ahead, the Bulldogs will finish up their series against LSU tomorrow at 2pm at Foley, then take a one-day trip up to Clemson on Tuesday. On April 1, they resume their SEC schedule in a three-game home series against Mississippi State (16-6, 2-2 SEC). Georgia ranks dead last in the SEC in both team batting and team pitching. They do not have a player ranked in the top 10 for any major category in the SEC.
