    Weather Report, March 9, 2016

    A 'Pineapple Express' brought as much as two inches of rain to the Bay Area over the past weekend, forestalling the start to the season, which was to have taken place on Sunday, March 6th.  The forecast for rain continues to look bleak for Ballists and Cranks, though somewhat better for the trees, flowers, and infield grass.  Two games are scheduled for this coming weekend, Sunday March 13th, at Big Rec Park in Golden Gate.  The league commissioners will keep a weather-eye for any changes in conditions, and faithfully update the schedule as reports come in.

    The provident commissioners planned for weather exigencies in this el nino season; postponed games will be rescheduled for bye weeks that do not fall on holidays, including an extra weekend at the end of the season for any remaining games to be decided before the playoffs.

    Stay tuned for schedule updates, and know that the sun will shine on BAVBB one day, soon.
