Peeler Classic: A full Saturday schedule
By Ronnie Gallagher
SALISBURY — Marny Hendrick will be the first to tell you.
Want rain? Schedule an Easter baseball tournament.
Rain once again foiled the Cliff Peeler Baseball Classic on Friday and Hendrick started making his calls to the coaches around 3 p.m.
He told the coaches to get ready for a full day of Saturday baseball. Six of the 12 games in the tournament will be played today.
There will be two games at 10 a.m.
At North, Davie County (16-2) faces West Iredell (9-6).
Lake Norman (16-3) and West Stokes (12-3) will square off at Salisbury’s Robertson Stadium.
At noon, North Rowan (14-4) will play host to Central Cabarrus (9-10), while Salisbury (9-6) will play host to McMichael (11-7).
The consolation games will be played at Salisbury at 2:30 and 4:30.
The semifinal games are also at Salisbury at 6:30 and 8:30.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for students.
An all-tournament pass is $10.
After the 10 and 12 games on Saturday, fans will have to buy another ticket.
On Monday, four games are scheduled for Salisbury.
The seventh-place game is at 11 a.m. The fifth-place game is set for 1:30.
The third-place game is scheduled for 4:30 and the championship contest will begin at 7:30.
