All Games Today (4/27) Are Cancelled
Both Cancelled in Lincoln and Omaha.

We've been evaluating the weather all morning and the lightning and thunder make the conditions too dangerous to play. There was a chance (not a good chance, but a chance), that things would clear up this afternoon and give us a moving 2-3 hour window to try to play. But even in that situation we'd need to have all the teams at the fields, and standing by, for an hour after hour announcement (likely waiting in their cars and likely for nothing as the chance of cancellation is still high), and our feedback from two season ago, was that that is undesirable for you guys and you'd prefer we just make a call before you head out to the fields, and stick with it.

Looking Forward
So. Here's how the season will look going forward. Due to different issues with scheduling and fields/teams, we cannot just push this weeks schedule forward a week. What will happen is that we will reschedule the games for next Sunday (5/4) released on Tuesday (4/29), and then the next Tuesday (5/6), we will release the schedule for the following two Sundays (5/11 and 5/18), and the schedule will proceed from there.

Yeah, we thought this might happen. It actually is even a bit nicer then they projected, and we probably could have gotten in a few hours of games today late.

But, no chance of games getting back on for the late ones though. Hopefully the rain will help to improve field conditions moving forward.

I'm glad that we didn't end up playing today. We woulda tore up those fields on the 1st day. Hopefully this gives the fields some time to grow more grass and not just dirt.
