The City has notified us that all games for today, 5/28/15, are cancelled.
We are all frustrated with the extraordinary rainfall we have received this year. It has affected our baseball season, but please keep in mind that it has devastated, in both lives and property, many people in our community and across the State of Oklahoma and North Texas.
The league will schedule as many make-up games as possible during the first two weeks of June. We are going to be limited by the damage that the flooding did to some of our fields. For those of you who do not know, the City of Durant, not the Durant Baseball League, maintains all the fields that the league uses for games. The lower fields at Billy Miller were underwater this past weekend. The fence around the Old Legion Field is torn down in many places. We don’t know yet how quickly the City can get any of those fields playable.
The current plan is to play the year end tournaments for Coach Pitch, Pee Wee, and Midget as we normally would each year, during the third week in June. Again, we are at the mercy of the weather. Our league is a member of OK Kids Baseball and OK Kids requires us to report by June 26 all the teams that qualify for a regional tournament.
I appreciate the patience and understanding that our coaches and parents have shown during this difficult season. The goal of the Board remains to enable the kids to have the best experience playing baseball that we can give them and to help them develop a love for this great game.
PLEASE CHECK THE SCHEDULE REGULARLY FOR CHANGES TO FIELD LOCATIONS, TIMES, AND GAME DATES.
