High winds in Georgia toppled a 50-foot section of the 18-foot-high center-field wall at Lake Olmstead Stadium shortly before Wednesday’s scheduled game between the Augusta GreenJackets and Hagerstown Suns, causing the contest to be postponed.
According to the Augusta Chronicle, heavy thunderstorms caused the accident less than an hour before the scheduled 7:05 first pitch. The game was postponed and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Thursday. Workers faced the chore of throwing up a 50-foot temporary wall before gametime Thursday.
