Pat Shingleton for Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 Pat Shingleton for Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 Advocate story May 12, 2013 Comments We attempt to assist Coach Paul Maineri during episodes of threatening weather at Alex Box Stadium. I sympathize with Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and his decision in 2008. It was the fifth game of the World Series, and Selig processed the opinions of weather experts predicting a rain-out. The commissioner postponed the game. It was the first time in history a World Series game was suspended with just 0.13 inches of rain recorded. On Friday, we were confident the LSU-Southeastern Louisiana game would experience only pops of light rain. The opposite occurred as thunderstorm cells tracked over the stadium constituting a rain out. If weather rains out a game after five innings, it’s recorded as an official game and the team with the most runs, unlike the weatherman, wins. Fastcast: Chilly.
