Legion baseball - Wayne County rained out ... again

MOUNT OLIVE -- Another rainout.

Early-morning downpours forced the postponement of Tuesday's key Area I East division contest between archrivals Wayne County and Snow Hill on the Scarborough Field diamond.

Post 11 carries a three-game win streak to Nash County today, entertains New Bern for a doubleheader Thursday and concludes regular-season play Saturday evening at nemesis Wilson Post 13. Post 11 has a make-up date for Friday, but Post 94 has a home game against Edenton.

Wayne County coach Brad Reaves said the Snow Hill game may not be rescheduled.

Area I commissioner Joe Tobert informed several coaches and athletic officers -- through telephone conversations and email -- that they were to "do all you can to get your games in" and that he would decide from there. All Area I East teams must play their final games before midnight Saturday.

Tolbert is expected to rule Sunday afternoon on "possible" forfeitures for teams that could not complete the 20-game division schedule. The top eight teams qualify for the postseason.

The first-round playoff series, a best-of-three format, begins July 4.
