Baseball/softball: Games vs. Taos delayed yet again

-A A +A
By The Staff

Apparently, four days’ warning wasn’t enough for the Taos Tigers to find a way to get to Los Alamos.

Monday’s baseball and softball doubleheaders between Taos and Los Alamos were postponed again after Taos’ administration informed Los Alamos High School athletic officials that their teams didn’t have transportation to make the trip.

LAHS athletic director Vicki Nelms said Taos had plenty of warning about Monday’s rescheduled contests. Nelms said she told Taos school officials Friday morning that there was a good chance Saturday’s games would have to be pushed back to Monday because of heavy snow falling in Los Alamos that morning.

All games have been postponed until Thursday.

For the baseball teams, it was the third time Los Alamos and Taos have had to reschedule events and the second time games have been postponed for flimsy reasons.

The two teams were scheduled to open District 2AAAA play April 1, but the game was postponed by the umpiring crew due to snowfall. The snow, however, stopped well before the 4 p.m. game time and the field was reasonably clear and dry when the first pitch was scheduled to be thrown.

Just a few miles away that same afternoon, the Los Alamos-Taos softball game went on as scheduled.
