Rainy weather put a damper on Del Norte High sports Tuesday.
Due to wet field conditions, the varsity baseball teams' doubleheader against Grants Pass, Ore., at the high school was canceled Tuesday morning. The JV game against Grants Pass was also canceled.
The softball team's game in Cave Junction, Ore., against Hidden Valley also canceled due to rain. It is scheduled to be played today.
Both baseball games are set at this time to be played at 2 p.m. Friday.
The varsity team plays at the high school, while the JV squad plays at Peterson Park in Crescent City.
Athletic director Bob Hadfield said while it was fairly sunny this morning, the school baseball field was covered with water, making it unsuitable to play, so it was decided to call Grants Pass and cancel the games.
Varsity baseball coach Pablo Lorenzi said normally a game or two is canceled each yar due to rainy conditions. The team was able to practice Tuesday afternoon, although there were still two fairly good sized areas of water on the field. The team just played around them.
On Thursday the varsity team plays at home against Rogue River, Ore., at 4 p.m. The JV team will face the Rogue River JV squad at Peterson Park.
While it may not be ideal playing two days straight, including a doubleheader, Lorenzi said it's better than not making up the games at all.
