Weather forces Metro baseball, softball to reschedule

Mar. 17—Rain and snow on Thursday and especially Friday wreacked havoc with the schedules for the baseball and softball Albuquerque Metro Championships.

There were no games in either tournament played on Friday, as the precipitation left fields unplayable both in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

The semifinals in each sport were rescheduled to 3 p.m. Saturday, with the championship games now slated for 3:30 Monday afternoon. Consolation games in both sports also will be played on Saturday.

In softball, Cibola is at La Cueva, and Albuquerque High visits Volcano Vista in the semifinals.

In baseball, Cleveland goes to La Cueva, and Volcano Vista is at Rio Rancho in the semis.
