Majors-Minors twinbill rained out

ENID, Okla. — April showers, bring may flowers.

May showers cancel a lot of baseball games.

Sunday’s scheduled doubleheader between the Enid Majors and Enid Minors was postponed for wet grounds from Saturday’s thunderstorms.

“The field was flooded,’’ Majors coach Chris Jensen said.

Jensen said he hoped the Les Beckham League games could be made up. The Majors swept the Minors 7-1 and 12-4 on Friday.

“We’ll see what we can come up with,’’ Jensen said. “It’s a matter of working around both of our schedules.’’

The Minors will be off until Wednesday when they go to Hennessey for a 6 p.m. doubleheader — one seven-inning game and one five-inning game. They will go to the Woodward Festival May 25-27.

The Majors will be off until Friday when they go to the Midwest City Outlaws Memorial Day Tournament for the first time since 2010.

“We’re still evaluating players on both teams,’’ Jensen said. “This would have been a good weekend to do it because we don’t have to travel anywhere.’’

Jensen would have liked to have played to see players in game situations.

“Friday was the first time I’ve seen some of those guys action other than run sprints or throw to a radar gun,’’ he said. “I was impressed with some of the guys.’’

The Majors have to work around graduation and baccalaureates this week. They are scheduled to have Monday and Tuesday off and workout Wednesday. They will be off Thursday because of Enid’s graduation.

“With all the different graduation days, you really don’t have everybody together until about the second or third week of the season,’’ Jensen said. “Right now, we’re just trying to get everybody implemented in our system. That takes time.’’

He will know a lot more about the Majors after the tournament which attracts a large number of pro scouts and college coaches.

“Doug Weese (Outlaws coach) runs a great tournament,’’ Jensen said. “It’s worth the two-hour trip.’’
