Lumber Co. battled the rain this past week only playing 6 innings out of their 2 scheduled JPD "B" league games. Lumber Co.'s Thursday night contest against KAOS was rained out. It will be rescheduled for later in the season. Then the Lumber Co. only got 6 innings of their Friday night league game in, before the rains hit, against KGB Softball (Uncle Richies). LoCo was trailing KGB 13-8 when the rain came. This game was back and forth all night with KGB scoring 4 in the bottom of the 6th to take a 5 run lead. In the top of the 7th Lumber Co. had runners at 1st and 3rd with no men out when the game was called off. The Lumber Co. have a busy week of softball coming up with a 7:30pm game on Thursday night against Primetime on field #2, then a Friday night game against U-Can-Win/Glory Days at 6:30pm on field #2.

Rained Out

Both of Lumber Company's games this week in Joliet Park District league play (Thursday, May 13th and Friday, May 14th) have been rained out. They will be rescheduled for later in the season. The LoCo will have next week off since no JPD league games are scheduled for next Thursday or Friday (May 20th and 21st), so we will not be back in action again until Thursday, May 27th, when we play perennial Joliet power Ken's Beverage at 8:30pm on field #1. We play again the next day, Friday, May 28th against Primetime at 7:30pm on field #4. Both these league games will serve as a tune-up for our next tournament, a USSSA "D" NIT in Indianapolis, IN at the Midwest Sports Complex, the weekend of Saturday, May 29th and Sunday, May 30th.
