Bad News Sports

The Sports can't buy a break lately. Mother Nature wiped out Friday's game and has a chance of doing the same for Saturday's doubleheader.

Independent ball is hard enough as it is, but losing home dates to weather is a cruel fact of minor league baseball. The organization loses a ton of income with each rainout. For a club like the Sports, that's trying to rebuild a fan base, rainouts are lethal.

Friday's rainout was No. 5 this season. At least the Sports can take solace of the fact that they haven't had to deal with Fort Worth's woes. The Cats have had 11 rainouts this season already.
