Rain wreaks havoc for Bulldogs

By Doug Gorman

The Eagle's Landing Golden Eagles and the Mt. Zion Bulldogs returned from spring break Monday afternoon with the hopes of resuming the Region 2-AAAAA high school baseball season.

Mother Nature had other ideas as the game scheduled for Mt. Zion High School was rained out.

The two teams will try again today with the first pitch scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

If the two coaches keep the same starting line up, University of Miami signee Mike Sanders will throw for Eagle's Landing, while Cannady Walker will go to the mound for Mt. Zion.

The umpiring crew did everything it could to get Monday's region contest played, but after two rain delays saturated the field with standing puddles, the game was delayed 24 hours.

It was the second heavy rain storm which ultimately forced the region contest to be postponed.

The 24-hour delay came after Eagle's Landing's Tres Moore led off the game by reaching on a bunt single.

That turned out to be the only action as a loud clap of thunder was the catalyst for the final heavy downpour.

When it started raining a second time, the game was immediately postponed.

Today's game will start from the very beginning.

Mt. Zion enters the game with a 4-3 region record. Eagle's Landing is 3-4 in league play.
