Question: When's a businessperson's special not a businessperson's special?
Answer: When it rains like it has in Hagerstown for the last week.
After six straight days of rain, including Tuesday's persistent showers, the Hagerstown Suns were forced to turn today's noon matinee with the Cape Fear Crocs into a twinight doubleheader, beginning at 6:05 p.m.
Today's scheduled 12:05 p.m. start went down the drain to give the Suns grounds crew as much time as possible to get the Municipal Stadium field in shape after the excessive rain.
It was the second straight rainout for the Suns and fourth in the last six days. During its current 10-game homestand, one game against Delmarva was suspended and will be played on Thursday as part of a doubleheader when the Suns travel to meet the Shorebirds.
