Clear Skies Mark Third Day of Play

Day Three of the World Wood Bat Association fall championship got underway this morning at 8 o’clock on 12 fields at the joint spring training complexes of the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals.

Unlike the start of play in the first two days of action, there is no imminent threat of rain as the skies above Jupiter, Fla., are largely clear with the exception of a disturbance off the Atlantic coast that is not expected to be a factor. Moreover, there is no measurable wind this morning after regular gusts up to 35 mph impacted play on the first two days.

While the prospect of rain was a constant threat almost throughout Thursday’s and Friday’s play and it rained briefly a couple of times, all 64 games were played in the first two days of play—as scheduled.

As play starts today, every team has played either one or two games. All will play four games by the completion of pool play on Sunday afternoon. There are 24 teams in the 80-team field with unblemished records, either 1-0 or 2-0. Only the 16 pool winners advance to the playoff round, a 16-team bracket that starts Sunday.

Two of the 2-0 teams, Georgia's Team Elite and Clearwater, Fla.-based Winning Inning are playing in this morning’s opening-round of games.
