Rainout!

I feel their pain.

Like thousands of other ballplayers across Texas, the young T-ball players at the YMCA have been plagued by rained-out practices and games, muddy fields and the hordes of fire ants that thrive in the wet weather.

“It’s the worst season I’ve ever seen. We had a lot of rain,” said Charlie Fox, who has been administrator of Little League baseball’s District 16 since 1981.

“At one time or another, we had from 15 to 20 games postponed throughout our playoff tournament. But we got them all in, finally.”

Dealing with rainouts was one of the less fun aspects of Little League coaching when I did it. Having to deal with the biblical levels of rainfall we’ve had this July would well and truly suck. Charlie Fox, I salute you.
