While understanding the necessity to play games given the time crunch many teams are under as the season comes to a close, Buccaneer coach Rusty Worcester said Monday’s field/weather conditions were clearly not the best for the pitchers and players in general.

“This was one of the toughest weather conditions games I have coached in for the past 11 years,” he said. “Wet conditions, light rain, wind blowing, awful. We have to play but it sure isn’t fun for the players. All pitchers struggled with wet balls and cold hands.”

He added that Russell, who transferred to Georges Valley from Rockland, is hitting higher than .500 and is “knocking in some big runs for the Bucs.”

Georges Valley (10-0, 73.6522 points) is second in Western Class C, while Telstar of Bethel (11-1, 79.1706 points) is first in the 18-team region. The Bucs have won 57 straight regular-season games dating back several seasons.
