Baseball and softball have had a hard time getting started as two weeks into the Dizzy Dean Baseball and Softball seasons in Bolivar, almost one-third of the games have been postponed by rain.

“We’ll do our best to make them up as we can,” said Bolivar Youth Athletics Commissioner Bobby Hensley. “We have this problem every April.”

According to Wikipedia, it rains more in April than any other month of the year in West Tennessee.

The most hard-hit leagues have been the boys 10U league as the four teams have only played two of their six scheduled contests, while the girls 12U league has only played one of three games on the schedule, while the 6U girls league has only played two of six games.

The other three leagues (girls 8U, girls 10U and boys 6U) have not had a game cancelled by rain yet this season.
