On the field, Minooka (7-3) was leading, 10-1, Lockport, 3-0, and was batting with two outs in the top of the third inning when the umpires halted play. Junior left-hander TJ Heafey, who is in his first season with Minooka after transferring from Providence, had worked two strong, hitless innings, and Luke Faifer, Cole Alstott and Mike Schellhorn had singled home Indians runs.
“This day has really become special to us,” Petrovic said. “Lockport does a fantastic job, and our parents pitch in where they can. This is one of my favorite days of the year. Today was tough, for sure, but it turned out to be another great event in bad conditions.”
