Stingers home finale rained out


WILLMAR -- Fan Appreciation Night turned into Fans Run to Your Car Night.

A heavy downpour and high winds forced the Willmar Stingers to cancel their regular-season home finale Thursday night.

The team planned to try to get the game in, even if it meant a late start, after the rains let up. But the field become too saturated to make playable and the two teams will play two seven-inning games today in Alexandria.
