For the Bismarck 15’s, the path to the Babe Ruth World Series will be even tougher after Friday’s opening action.
Their contest with the Fargo Americans was stopped because of lightning in the top of the fourth inning, but shortly after 7 p.m. the skies opened and the area got the rain it has sorely needed. At 7:30 the coaches met with the tournament director and umpires, and the group decided to officially postpone the game.
At the time of the stoppage, the 15’s were trailing 4-0 in the top of the fourth, and the 15’s only had mustered only one hit.
As of right now, the game is scheduled to be made up at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
Earlier in the day, though, the skies were clear for the Bismarck Bombers to take on Wahpeton.
