IBL: Too Wet for Thunderbirds to Fly

The large wet weather system slowly pushing through southern Ontario has drowned Intercounty Baseball League play throughout the weekend, including this Sunday’s ballgame between the Brantford Red Sox and the Hamilton Thunderbirds.

The game will be the second straight home game for Hamilton affected by incliment weather, with last Friday evening’s contest being called off in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Thunderbirds were trailing 4-2 during the contest. The remainder of that game will be made up on May 27th when the Fat Cats are next in town.

As of press time all but the game between Barrie in Toronto had been called off. Rain dates for today’s postponements have yet to be announced by the IBL.

Next game for the Thunderbirds is Friday night when the team travels to London to face the Majors. Next game at home is one week from today when Hamilton will play host to the Burlington Twins. Tickets for the game are available at the Bernie Arbour Stadium box office on game day, with adult tickets available for $5.00. The game will be broadcast on tape delay by Cable 14.

*update – shortly after this was posted the game in Toronto was also postponed
