Bryan-College Station, TX (June 17, 2007) – The Brazos Valley Bombers announced that today’s scheduled game in Mineral Wells against the Steam has been postponed due to rain. No makeup date has been announced.
This is the second straight road date that has been postponed due to weather. Yesterday’s scheduled doubleheader in Duncanville also fell victim to rain. All that remains of the Bombers’ three-day, four-game road trip is Monday’s trip to Weatherford to take on the Wranglers for the first time this season.
The Bombers will return to Brazos Valley on Wednesday for games against the Denton Outlaws and the Wranglers. Thursday night will mark the return of Thirsty Thursdays, featuring 50-cent 16-ounce soft drinks and one dollar 12-ounce draft beers, sponsored by Jack FM.
