Weather delays start of district play for Elks
Mother Nature wasn’t kind to Burleson’s baseball team on Tuesday as rain canceled the Elks District 5-5A home opener with Mansfield Legacy.
Burleson coach Daniel Bruce said Tuesday afternoon he expected the game to be played Thursday night because of the forecast of heavy rain early Wednesday morning.
That means the Elks (11-2-1) would play back-to-back games against the Broncos at Burleson Thursday night and Friday night at Legacy.
The 5-5A schedule this year has teams playing what amounts to a two-game series each each.
Burleson is slated to play Tuesday at Mansfield Timberview.
