The poor weather in recent weeks which has created havoc with outdoor spring sports- such as baseball, softball and track- should not come as a shock. This isn’t the first year when games are canceled due to rain, snow and below average temperatures in the months of March and April. It also won’t be the last. Another fact of life in the spring is college tests being taken on Saturday mornings. Prom time is just around the corner as well as graduation. These factors, which drive a coach or two crazy, are also facts of life in the spring. Is it news? Hardly. The veteran coaches of the spring cancel a game and hope for better weather ahead. A story in the spring would be when baseball and softball teams are actually able to play 35 games without losing any dates to the weather. The chances of that happening? About the same as taxes or gas prices going downward. In other words, no chance at all. Just grin and bear it.
