Another day, another postponement.
For the second day in a row, the showdown series between Cheshire and Middletown for the American Legion Zone 3 championship was postponed due to weather. Tuesday’s game was postponed to Friday at 5:45 p.m. in Cheshire.
The two teams will play a huge doubleheader Wednesday beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Palmer Field. Game 3 of the series is Thursday in Cheshire at 5:45 p.m.
Middletown will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Night during the second game of tonight’s twinbill. Tickets to Minor and Major League Baseball games will be among the prizes raffled off. Season ticket holders will be in a postgame drawing for a $300 gift certificate.
Cheshire must win 3 of the 4 games to win the zone; Middletown must win 2 of the 4. Middletown has a two game lead (19-5 to 17-7) but if Cheshire wins three and finishes in a tie with Middletown, it wins on the head-to-head tiebreaker.
