Thursday game in limbo

by Chris Conley

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) I walked Simon Field earlier today, and its waterlogged. Whenever it rains there seems to be ponding near the sliding area at third base and in front of the infield cut at second. (I've posted a field photo on the EverythingEvergreens.com instagram account #DCEverest.)

It would take a lot of raking and DiamondDry to get the field ready for the scheduled Thursday afternoon game against Wausau-West. And its a moot point if we cant get a several hours without rain to get the work in.

Wausau-Wests field is worse, with an unplayable infield. The Warriors have played only three games because of the wet weather. Their last outing was a 5-2 win over Merrill, their first win of the season.

It's possible Thursday's game could be rescheduled to Friday, but the weather may not be any better. The game could also be made-up as a doubleheader at Wausau-West on May 22. Last season West gave up a home-game and played a make-up doubleheader at Simon Field.
