Storms Postpone College World Series Games

June 13, 2000

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Tuesday’s College World Series games were postponed when severe weather swept through the Omaha area.

Clemson and Louisiana-Lafayette were scheduled to start an elimination game at 2 p.m. CDT, but the grounds crew rolled out the tarp just before game time. Rain started about 20 minutes later and was expected to continue through the night.

The game was postponed around 4 p.m.

Clemson and Louisiana-Lafayette were pushed back to Wednesday at 12 p.m. CDT. The Southern California-Florida State game, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, was rescheduled for the same time Wednesday.

Stanford will play either Clemson or Louisiana-Lafayette on Thursday at 2 p.m. Louisiana State faces the winner between USC and Florida State at 6 p.m. Thursday.

It was the second straight year rain hit on the Tuesday of the College World Series. Last year, games between Alabama and Rice and Florida State and Cal State Fullerton were washed out.
