Well, maybe a government shutdown can.
Commissioner Gallaway has been meeting with Obama administration officials as well as National Park Service Rangers and it looks like if the government shutdown occurs on Friday that Gravelly Point will be closed on Sunday.
Commissioner Gallaway said the PWL was reviewing contingency plans and alternate field locations but that no decisions had been made at this time.
The PWL has faced cancellations before due to field issues. Of course rain outs have been common, especially in Spring. The Spring 2009 season was suspended for 35 days for rainouts and one grass out.
The Spring 2008 season was interrupted because high levels of arsenic were discovered at the field…from OUTER SPACE! It turned out that actually taking a soil sample was more accurate than observing the ground from OUTER SPACE and after a two week break, playing resumed.
