It was a long day for the DeSoto County baseball team in more ways than one. The Bulldogs boarded the bus at 1:30 p.m. Thursday for the trip to Tampa for their regional quarterfinal game against Berkeley Prep. Little did they know they wouldn’t leave Tampa until the next day. Their ten-inning, 7-6 loss made the two-hour bus ride home even longer.
The game had been rained out Wednesday and moved to a 5 p.m. start Thursday to avoid the predicted rain. During pregame workouts, lightning was registered on the detection meters so both teams had to leave the field. With a new game time scheduled for 6:15 p.m., Mother Nature didn’t cooperate as she dumped a 45-minute shower on the field starting at 6 p.m.
