Unplayable field means Cats, Huskies doubleheader will continue in Duluth

It’s a rarity that a game starts in one country and ends in another.

But that’s exactly the fate facing the Thunder Bay Border Cats and Duluth Huskies on Wednesday. The Northwoods League teams were three innings into a scheduled cross-border doubleheader at Port Arthur Stadium when heavy rains rendered the field unplayable.

The Huskies were leading the Border Cats 3-0, one batter into the top of the fourth, when the skies opened.

The two teams will resume play later Wednesday at Wade Stadium in Duluth, then play a seven-inning game to complete the twin-bill. 

The league scheduled duel-city games for all 18 of its teams.

What a terrible idea by the league. What happens if Duluth gets the same storm? Will the league be paying for travel costs? Its a waste of time to cram in two games like this. Already too many games played in this league. You don't have a full roster at the start nor the end as kids leave or the schools call them back. a 230 end time for the game? When is a home game less than 3 hours this year? Why not make them 7. Wake up NWL.
