Springfield 16

Frisco 4

Anxious fans waiting to get in on opening day at Hammons Field. Fans were bundled up since game time temperature was 56 and windy.

It was magnetic schedule giveaway day.

Storm clouds looming overhead

Getting darker and windier.

Springfield Cardinals players were brought onto the field on brand new red pick-up trucks.

Frisco's Craig Gentry steps up to the plate. On the mound for Springfield was Kyle Mura.

.......and then the rains came.

2 hour and 40 min. rain delay. Ridiculous! Brian and I left after waiting over an hour. We figured there was no way the field could absorb all of that water, but amazingly the game resumed.
