Cubs opener rained out

Rain forced the Kincardine Cubs to postpone the team's home opener over the weekend.

The Cubs were to host the Lucan Irish Nine Sunday afternoon at Connaught Park, but the rain wiped out any ideas of that. Even if the rain had stopped, much of Tout Field at Connaught Park was underwater anyways.

The game will be rescheduled. A date has yet to be determined.

The Cubs will try again this weekend. Kincardine has a double-header at home on the schedule for Sunday against the Ingersoll Blue Jays. The first pitch is to be thrown out at noon at Connaught Park in Kincardine. The teams will play again at 3 p.m. in Midwestern Ontario Senior Baseball League regular season action.

The Cubs are to play again next Wednesday night at home against the Hanover Hitmen. That one is a 7:30 p.m. start.
