Blame it on the weather – this year’s Batavia Rotary Club Baseball Tournament is cancelled.
Originally scheduled for Saturday May 10, chairman Tom Turnbull reports it is cancelled this year and will not be made up this season.
Because of the cold start to spring and the wet period following that, Turnbull says the schools (which this year included Batavia, Notre Dame, Albion and Attica) need that Saturday to make up league doubleheaders. The teams need to get on track with their schedule after weather impacted them significantly early on.
Turnbull says it’s disappointing but, though they considered some, there were no better options. The tournament is expected to go one as scheduled, he says, next year.
