This past weekend was the Tournament Jamboree for the Babe Ruth Calgary 2016 season. In the days leading up to the weekend, the weather forecast changed every hour it seemed. On Friday night, it was calling for rain all day Saturday and cold temps as well so when I got up Saturday morning, I sort of expected puddles. It was dry, cold, but dry and the forecast didn’t call for any rain. Nice.
We got to the park for pre-game warm ups and all was well until just after the start of the game. Rain mixed with ice pellets made short work of the game, we got two innings finished before the mound was too slick to continue. The rest of the day was a wash out as well.
Sunday was cold but dry. The AA Rockies played 5 innings and drew to a 1-1 tie. Not a bad start for the season.
The AAA team opens the season on Tuesday evening against the Indians. Both teams play next weekend and Sunday is officially Opening Day with a BBQ and Opening Day Ceremonies. The forecast for Saturday isn’t great right now, but it will change a few dozen times between now and then. Good luck Rockies !!!
