If it were not for bad luck, the North Little Rock Colts would have no luck at all.
Coach Brock Moore has had a hard time getting any of the American Legion clubs on the field, mostly due to weather.
All games scheduled for last week were washed out; something that Moore couldn’t remember being precedent for this season.
“I can’t remember when we’ve gone a whole week like that,” Moore said. “It’s definitely a rarity.”
Mother Nature didn’t have much to do with Tuesday night circumstances. In the middle of the third inning, the lights in left field blacked out forcing the cancellation of competition.
“We are only a week or two in,” Moore said. “But it’s going to be critical pretty soon to play games.”
While competition is something the Colts are starved for, Moore said they might find themselves feasting soon.
A home game against Benton this week followed by participation in Sheridan’s Wood Bat Tournament, an American Legion tradition, will likely have Moore and the Colts craving a break.
As the season matures into the summer, weather historically decreases it’s influence on the schedule.
They may not feel like they’ve gotten started yet, but when they do; the schedule is going to be packed.
