Here comes the rain ...

June, 19, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- Spoke too soon.

The rain -- and lightning -- have arrived here at Rosenblatt Stadium. The tarp is back on the field, and both LSU and Arkansas have retreated to their respective clubhouses.

There is no word on when this weather delay will end. Is it officially a weather delay if the game hasn't started yet? Another check of local radar has a long line of thunderstorms headed in a straight line from southwest to northeast on a direct path to Omaha. So it could be a while before any baseball is played here today.

At any rate, once (if?) the weather subsides, a minimum of 80 minutes is needed to prepare the field for play once the tarp has been removed.
