The Unity Cardinals are set to host the Oil City Ducks tonight in a North Saskatchewan River Baseball League matchup. That's if the weather holds up, as rain isn't in the forecast at the moment, but high winds should make for an interesting ball game.

The North Saskatchewan River Baseball League is just one local senior ball circuit facing a slew of rainouts since beginning their season in mid-May, joining the Fertile Valley Baseball League and the Coteau Hills Baseball League in getting off to a slow start.  The FVBL and CHBL both just recently got underway, and already had to reschedule a few (but not all) games due to the rain.

The Lashburn Cardinals beat the Wilkie Brewers 14-6 on Sunday to open up another week of NSRBL action, but four games were rained out in the two days afterwards. That's in addition to the pair of rainouts last week that called off a game in North Battleford May 29, and in Wilkie on May 30 as the Unity Cardinals were in town. 

Every FVBL team except the Eatonia Wheat Kings has started their season after the league's opening day back on May 28. The end of May saw games go off without a hitch, but the first action of June was postponed after the Kindersley Cubs and Rosetown Angels both had to cancel on Tuesday.

The CHBL is in a similar boat as the Eston Ramblers are the only team without a recorded game. The league has five games played through the first two weeks of the season, and are now looking forward to an even busier June.
