The last time St. Louis played back-to-back doubleheaders was July 21 and July 22, 1994, against Atlanta.
Due to Mother Nature's weather interruption on Friday night, they have another after twenty-five years of avoiding a Baseball Marathon Weekend, two days of split day-night games.
At this hour of the morning, 'from the hourly' report, cloudy to partly sunny for today and good to go this evening. Sunday ~ partly sunny. But per the "day" report for today ~ a 30-40% of rain 'off and on".
We will hope for the best and hold faith that Mother Nature has gotten the 'the hourly' memo.
