GLENDALE — The St. Francis High and Hoover baseball teams planned to board buses for their respective CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card road games Tuesday afternoon.
After rain fell early Tuesday and caused unplayable field conditions, those plans were quickly quashed.
Instead, St. Francis and Hoover will participate in their postseason games today — weather permitting.
St. Francis (14-13) will face Peninsula (19-8-1) and Hoover (9-16) will meet Bellflower (16-8) at 3:15 p.m. The weather didn't do the teams any favors. All first-round games are set for Thursday, thus leaving the wild-card teams with no time to prepare for their next opponents.
CIF Southern Section Director of Communications Thom Simmons said that if wild-card games are called off today because of rain, they would be moved to Thursday and the first round would take place Friday.
