Not So Fast

The first leg of the 2013 spring trip just got a little bit shorter...but maybe not in games The 4-game series between Lake Erie and the University of Charleston scheduled for this weekend will get started a day later as Saturday's double header has been cancelled due to weather concerns. The forecast was calling for possible snow and a high of 33 degrees. Sunday doesn't look much better but at least it provides some hope. There is a chance the two games scheduled for Saturday may be rescheduled for Monday, but everything is up in the air at this point.

Lake Erie has made the trip to Charleston since 2009 and has gone 5-3 in 8 games against the Golden Eagles. The impact of the weather is nothing new to this series. In 2011, the Storm won a weather-shortened game in the nightcap of a twin bill, 13-9. The game ended after a delay of 53 minutes during the 6th inning, after it began to hail at Power Park. Check out some video from the dugout during the delay. For the full video archive, check out

The remainder of the spring trip is still on as scheduled but if games are lost due to weather, there is the possibility of adding a few more to the latter part of the trip. Stay current by following the Storm on Twitter @lecsports and by visiting
