The talk of the game was the rain delay of 1 hour and 24 minutes. Actual rain was about 25 minutes and was very hard with lightening all around, which is why the game was called in the first place, before the rain.
Monkton’s crack Grounds Crew went into action quickly once the rain stopped. A lot of work with the rakes and brooms and a number of bags of magic dust (or was it kitty litter?) were worked into soak up the wet and then we were ready to play again. Home plate umpire Bob Henning gave full marks to the Grounds Crew for their quick work and for making the field safe to play on again.
 
Circle Tap broke the game open in bottom of the 6th with three runs to break the 1-1 tie.
The game was a lot closer than the score would indicate. Jarvis held their own right into the 6th inning
 
Up until the rain hit, there was a good sized crowd enjoying the game. I give full marks to the hard core fastball fans who stayed and watched the remainder of the second game. The night was actually very pleasant other than the brief period of rain, a few work light jackets but most were in short sleeves and enjoying the evening.
 
We were able to do a number of inning by inning updates using the BlackBerry, see

Action picks up again at 2pm Friday.
