The Herts Ravens’ Opening Day game at home against the Richmond Knights has been postponed. The rain on Saturday has flooded the new diamond and the grounds crew will simply not be able to repair it in time even with the help of the expected warmer weather on Sunday.
The new diamond was already flooded on Saturday and the youth games scheduled for that day had to be moved to the Old Diamond. The additional rain on Saturday afternoon and evening has added to the problem and the grounds crew had no other choice but to postpone the Ravens verus Knights game on the new diamond.
UPDATE: A later inspection at the Old Dimaond has indicated that the grounds crew should be able to have that field ready for a 1pm start of the Hawks vs Mammoths game with some assistance from warmer and sunnier weather predicted for today.
