Mother Nature wins the Catfish final home game
(August 6th) The Catfish players, coaches, front office, interns and over 1000 fans were ready to watch the Catfish win game #40 on the season in their final regular season home game. Unfortunately, Mother nature won tonight as you can see by the picture.
“There was absolutely nothing in the forecast as of 5pm,” said Catfish President Glenn Campbell. “We had the entire stadium set up, food, beverage, merchandise, music, everything was set for a perfect evening. Then the skies opened and it never stopped for 2 hours. We waited as long as we could but the field was unplayable as you can see some of our players sliding in the outfield water.”
The entire park flooded as the new lagoon that’s still being worked on overflowed and the water had nowhere to go. It ended up in the Catfish outfield and for the first time this season, a game was cancelled due to rain.
“We hate it for our fans”, said GM Mark Hogan. “So many people were ready to have a good time and then bam, it hit.”
Anyone that has a ticket to tonight’s game can use it for a game next season. “There aren’t any rainout refunds unfortunately and tonight was our last home game,” said Campbell. “The playoffs start tomorrow and it’s a whole new season and ticketing deal.”
The Catfish want to thank everyone for their support this season as it’s been a very special one. There are plenty of seats left for the playoff game tomorrow against Thrillville. Gates open early at 5pm and the game starts at 6:35pm. Come on out and lets fill up Capaha!
