Good afternoon and welcome back to Clarksville, Tenn., for today's doubleheader at Raymond Hand Park.
Wish I had better news about playing conditions. We have already been pushed back an hour due to the rain and field conditions. We hopped on the bus at noon and when we got to the field, there was still a lake - yes, that much water - in center field. I told Doug Dekoning he should be wearing aqua socks when he heads out there...
Needless to say, it's wet and far from ideal, but hopefully we will get both games in today. The rain is done and from the looks of radar, will not be back until the overnight.
At this point, I do believe that we are still starting at 1 p.m.
This has not been confirmed.

Anyways, starting line-up for UWM is: Andy Gerhartz (2B), Shaun Wegner (RF), Shawn Wozniak (1B), Ben Long (DH), Josh Groves (C), Tim Patzman (LF), Cole Kraft (SS) and Doug Dekoning (CF).
On the mound is junior Nate Caldwell (0-1).
Ryne Mantooth at 0-1 and 8.10 ERA, throws for APSU.
Not good stats, but a great last name.
The live stats will be available HERE as soon as the games begins.
