The postponed games from April 18th have been rescheduled. In order to avoid triple or quadruple headers and/or a Saturday make-up, I had to move a few things around beginning on May 2nd. Games for tomorrow, April 25th, remain unaffected.

Ya know, the older I get the tougher it gets. I realize that's just the way it is. But, this year has been an incredible challenge to say the very least. I ask the Wednesday league to bear with me as we negotiate through a very trying Spring schedule. A revised schedule has been posted online.

As much as I don't want games to go to a Saturday, there comes a time where we have no other option. The many postponements have creating a serious scheduling issue making a Saturday make-up a necessity. In accordance with schedule guidelines, the postponed games from April 25th have been reschedule for Saturday, May 12th (May 5th is unavailable to us). In an effort to give relief to Teams 6 and 7 who had double headers on April 25th, I moved the 6 vs. 7 game to May 30th so no team would have to play a Saturday double header. A revised Wednesday Coed schedule is not posted online.

The 2018 Wednesday Coed scheduling merry-go-round continues. Team #9, 2 Balls 1 Strike, has pulled out of the league at the last minute. It is said every dark cloud has a silver lining. So too does this dark cloud.

Instead of a bye this week, Team 6 will play Team 10 at Hatfield 9:30. In the scheduling revision I was able to eliminate the Saturday make-ups. Most of the postponed games from April 25th will now go to May 30th. As a result, Team 5 will have a traveling double header (7:00 Hatfield and 9:00 Quarry). The only Saturday make-up game left to reschedule is the 10 vs. 11 game of which I have no room for on May 30th. As a result, the 10 vs. 11 game will be played on Monday, June 4th at the Quarry 9:00 pm.

My guess is playing a traveling DH and/or a game on another weeknight beats the heck out of playing on a Saturday. A revised Wednesday Coed scheduled has been posted.

Glad that you're looking at the positive side of this, Les. I believe this is the 5th version of the schedule, so I imagine you're pretty tired of looking at it by now. The elimination of the Saturday game does benefit me, as mine happened to conflict with my one of my 5-year old's T-Ball games, where I have somehow gotten roped into being the team's head coach/manager (chief cat-herder).

I don't understand the team withdrawal at this stage though. We were scheduled to start play on March 28th (ambitiously, admittedly) and they would have been ready to go then, but now - 5 weeks later - they're not? I guess I don't know the whole story (and don't really need to), so maybe there's a good reason. But on the face of it, it boggles the mind.

Anyway, thank you!

In accordance with scheduling guidelines, the postponed games from May 16th have been reschedule for Saturday, Jun 2nd. In an effort to give relief to Teams 6 and 7 who had a double header on May 16th and because the opportunity presented itself, I moved the 6 vs. 7 game to Monday, June 4th (10:15 pm). This way no team has to play a Saturday double header. A revised Wednesday Coed schedule is now posted online.
