T-Bones and RedHawks rained out

Doubleheader scheduled for Sunday

The Kansas City T-Bones and the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks were rained out because of unplayable field conditions Saturday night at T-Bones Stadium in Kansas City, Kansas.

The team led by the grounds crew made every effort to get the field ready to play the game but the amount of rain that has fallen in metro Kansas City was just too much to allow the teams to take the field.

The two teams will play two seven-inning games Sunday afternoon with game one beginning at 1:05 p.m. The T-Bones are expected to start right-handed pitcher Tommy Collier while Fargo will start left-handed pitcher Sebastian Kessay. In game two the T-Bones will start former Royal left-handed pitcher Eric Stout while the RedHawks will counter with left-handed pitcher Tyler Pike.

Tickets for Saturday night’s game will be good for any future regular-season home game and may be exchanged at the Saint Luke’s box office at T-Bones Stadium for a ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. The gates will open at noon Sunday at T-Bones Stadium.

Sunday is a full day on the promotions schedule starting with magnetic schedule giveaway. The day is also the Sunday Funday promotion. There will be free inflatables, fans can have a pre-game catch on the field, and kids (12 and under) eat free.

Full and half-season 2019 ticket packages as well as mini plans are on sale now online or by calling 913-328-5618 or by visiting the Saint Luke’s Box Office between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Group ticket sales are also on sale now. For more information, visit
