Gulf South Conference baseball tournament leaves Chattanooga

Even though Sunday turned into a beautiful day, the Gulf South Conference baseball tournament was unable to resume due to unplayable conditions at AT&T Field and Chattanooga State.

Because of field conditions, weather and a growing time crunch, the GSC decided to leave Chattanooga and play the final three days of the tournament at West Georgia in Carrollton, Ga., Chattanooga Sports Committee president Tim Morgan said.

"They've got to get this tournament done," Morgan said, "and there were just too many 'what ifs' here."

Saturday's three games were rained out, as were two games Sunday. The championship game was scheduled for today. The players on the six remaining teams were able to take batting practice at Chattanooga State on Sunday.

Even though the weather wasn't cooperative, Morgan said he received positive feedback from the GSC and its coaches about the experience at AT&T Field. This was the first year Chattanooga hosted the tournament, though it might not be the last.
