Storms in, tarps out: Baseball Section Finals resume Wednesday
Published 7:52 am Wednesday, June 5, 2019
A pair of area baseball teams will have to wait an extra day to see if they can make it to state.
The Austin baseball team was leading Albert Lea 5-0 in the bottom of the third inning of the Section 1AAA finals in Marcusen Park and Hayfield was trailing Spring Grove 4-0 in the third inning of the Section 1A finals at Seltz Field when storms rolled into the area and postponed both contests.
Each team will resume play at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
