H.S. Baseball/Softball: Rain causes postponement, suspension, schedule changes

May 29—MOOSIC — Rain once again played havoc with the District 2 baseball and softball schedule Wednesday as one game was postponed and another suspended.

The District 2/4 Class 6A baseball championship game at PNC Field in Moosic between Hazleton Area and Williamsport was postponed. The decision was made about 75 minutes before the scheduled 6 p.m. start.

There will now be two full games and the completion of another Thursday at PNC Field.

At noon, Pittston Area and Selinsgrove will play in the D2/4-5A championship game. Hazleton Area vs. Williamsport will follow at 2:30 p.m. At 5 p.m., Holy Redeemer and Mid Valley will complete the D2-3A title game that was suspended because of rain Tuesday with Mid Valley leading 7-1 going to the fifth inning.

The D2-2A championship game was played Wednesday with Mountain View defeating Elk Lake 8-2.
