Casey needs repairs; Garrard needs a game
Casey County is juggling its baseball schedule after what the National Weather Service called “a weak tornado” damaged its field Sunday night. (I don’t quite know what they consider a weak tornado, but ask anybody whose barn was blown down or whose house was damaged if they thought it was weak.)
The twister damaged the scoreboard, bleachers and some fencing at Casey’s baseball/football field, athletic director Victor Black said. There were also some things blown around at the tennis courts and track nearby.
The Rebels were scheduled to host Garrard County today, but it was too wet and cold to play anyway. They’ve scheduled a makeup game for Wednesday at East Jessamine, and their scheduled home games with Somerset on Thursday and Southwestern on Friday have now become road games. They’ll host those teams on April 20 and 24, respectively, assuming sufficient repairs are made by then.
Meanwhile, Garrard is trying to get some work in after a number of recent postponements and cancellations. Coach Ed Rall said he’d like to add a game this Friday if there’s another team out there that also needs to play.
