The Perham Pirates and Huntersville Horseflies had an exhibition game scheduled for Friday evening, May 24 at 7:30pm at Tuffy's Stadium at Al Krueger Field. The rains came around 4:00 in the afternoon and had been off and on until the first pitch. As soon as the game was underway, the rain continued to fall, although only in a drizzle.
With the game tied 0-0 heading into the bottom half of the 3rd inning, the rain began to fall harder. David Krueger leadoff the inning and hit a groundball to the third baseman, who threw the ball away allowing Krueger to end up on 2nd base. A wild pitch would move him to third and center fielder Collin Tiech would draw a walk.
With runners on first and third with nobody out, the umpire called for a rain delay and both teams began to wait it out. However, the rain kept coming and after about 5-10 minutes, the game was called.
The Pirates and Horseflies haven't decided on a make-up date as they will see if the two teams will face off in the DL Tournament held during the 7th - 9th of June.
