Even Baker Field in Willmar on Friday had too much water for the visiting Madison (Wis.) Mallards, which forced the Willmar Stingers to postpone the Northwoods League game tonight and move it to Saturday double-header at 3:05 p.m. With a portion of the parking lot also flooded, it appears it may be a bit before fly balls can soar again at the ballpark.
