    This was not a lightening delay. This appeared to be a weather delay based solely on predicting a storm cell movement. And it was stupid because you have no time to waste in conference tournaments.

    Lightning rule does not start until game starts. Before game, it's the umpires call on when to play.

    A few years back we got called off a soccer field and decided to end practice since we were close to finishing anyway. After everyone left a parent turned around to go back and check on something. He told us that when he got back less than two minutes after we left there was a black smoldering spot on the ground where we were standing.

    I also had a friend struck by lightning on campus next to the engineering building many years ago as well. Cloudy day but no rain at the time. He woke up in the hospital with third degree burns and nerve damage but survived. Numerous students around him weren't hurt thank goodness.

    Point is that no one is going to take a chance with lightning in this day and age. It is what it is but don't blame the SBC, school or umps.... blame mother nature.
    Yep.....had a friend struck by lighting on a day very much like today. He too survived, but everyone was amazed that he did. Definitely nothing to mess around with, or a bad rule.

    A friend of mine was killed by lightning at softball practice in Baton Rouge. It's 30 minutes, somebody's life worst case and best case tons of liability.

    No, you're right. Stupid comment by me. Can't mess around with people's lives. Insensitive, and I apologize if I offended anyone.

    Hey idiot, playing a double elimination tournament is more important than wasting arms; that's expected.

    Hey idiot..we are gonna play a double elimination tournament...who you think is gonna throw in a run rule? Then who you think that lines up us to face? Sorry it's past your bed time or inconvenient but we are trying to win to get in. Burning quality bullpen arms the day before we play helps that. Just like you would hope we run rule Little Rock tonight to not burn front line arms. Nice cool westerly wind out here..we will be fine...be happy tourney isn't in gulf shores. Other Game is currently in the 7th
