The team made it to Round Rock

It took about 10 hours, but the team bus made it to the hotel in Round Rock around 5 o’clock. I was told they had to travel slowly for a while due to the sleet.


Glad to hear. I wondered if they were taking a bus.

Matt, what is your gut feel on getting in three games this weekend?
Weather forecast shows a lot of cold tomorrow and rainy on Saturday. Maybe a Sunday doubleheader or would they move games to Monday?

I don’t think there would be a Monday game. My guess is if Saturday’s games were rained out they would not be made up, but that’s just a guess.

If Saturday is wiped out that would require six games in the ballpark on Sunday. I don’t think that’s happening.

Weather early this week in Round Rock would have been great for baseball games. Weather all next week would be the same – fantastic.

This weekend – ugh.

Unfortunately, February baseball is especially vulnerable to the luck of the draw in weather, no matter where you play.

It would require four games Sunday, but to your point, I don’t think that will happen. The ballpark in Hoover hosts four games a day for the SEC Tournament and those often turn into 16- to 18-hour days for the stadium workers.

For some reason I was thinking six teams were there instead of four. But four games is a brutal day, as Hoover finds out every year.

That was the way the State Farm College Baseball Showdown worked last year. There were 3 teams on each side and they never played each other. Tea sippers, Texas Tech, and TCU on one side with Hogs, Moo U and the RebNecks on the other.
