WEATHER UPDATE AS OF 6/19/2015 - 6:00pm
We have sun & wind - all we can ask for at this point - just wish it would have came a day or two earlier - the outfield of HS field is wet - not much we can do with it - it will dry out after a few games in on Saturday - right now there is some standing water in parking lot on the low end - it also will go down as we go thru Saturday - the field crews have worked all day on the fields & have them in the best shape they could get them with all the rain we have received in this area not only in the past few days but the last two months - with that said the fields are not what Alma's USSSA director Pat Medeiros is used to having for a tournament & not what the Field of Dreams in Van Buren would normally have to offer but after talking with Mike Schmidt - State USSSA director, the whole state of Arkansas is dealing with the same problem of too much water! Coaches & Parents please be patient with the field conditions & understand it just is what it is & nobody is at fault. As the weekend moves along field conditions will get better but with the water and now temperatures in the high 80's & close to 90* it will feel very hot & humid please hydrate your players starting now. Coaches we will have you sign in under your team name when entering gate for game 1 of each day & for each game following please check in we will put a check mark for each coach entering complex. Please remind your parents of gate prices for State tournaments.
Thank You & lets all have a Great Weekend of Baseball & Good Luck to all teams!
