Tribune photo by Rand Middleton Baker Field was too deep in rainwater Friday for the visiting Madison Mallards, forcing the Willmar Stingers to postpone the Northwoods League game and move it to a Saturday doubleheader.

Stingers still underwater


WILLMAR — The Willmar Stingers have not played a home game since June 9.

The Stingers postponed all four home games the past two weeks due to heavy rain and poor field conditions at Bill Taunton Stadium.

The field has been partially underwater since heavy rain last weekend, but the water had started to go down Wednesday before more rain Wednesday and Thursday caused water levels to rise again.

As of Friday night, the infield remained flooded.
