Mother Nature is the big winner in American Legion baseball this week.

Persistent rain forced cancelation of the Enid Majors’ scheduled 3-game series with Lubbock, Texas, Roosevelt High School’s team which was set for Friday and today at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.

The Majors have had eight straight home games rained out, starting with a June 14 date with Woodward.

That’s opposed to actually playing six home games, the last being June 12 with Ark City, Kan. Enid, 18-9, hasn’t played since June 22.

The Majors are scheduled to play a doubleheader with Chickasha Monday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.

Enid coach Bill Mayberry has contacted Wichita State University officials about trying to get a game there Sunday afternoon on the school’s artificial field.

“They are getting the same weather we are,’’ Mayberry said. “I don’t know if that’s going to work either.’’

Mayberry said Enid is in the same boat with the rest of the teams in Oklahoma.

“It could be a lot worse,’’ Mayberry said. “A lot of teams scheduled their Fourth of July Tournament this weekend. There’s a lot of teams sitting in hotel rooms not getting to play.’’

Enid will host its own Fourth of July Tournament beginning Wednesday.

The Enid AAA’s scheduled game Friday with Moore at the Stillwater Tournament was rained out.

The AAA’s are scheduled to try again against Wagoner today and Stillwater Sunday.

“It doesn’t look good,’’ said Enid coach James Peoples. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.’’
