Light pole falls at Municipal Stadium, Suns' game canceled

July 22, 2011

A light pole fell onto the baseball field at Municipal Stadium during Friday's storm, causing the cancellation of the Hagerstown Suns' game against the Augusta GreenJackets.

Suns officials said the pole fell between the end of the bleachers and the picnic area on the third-base side of the field.

The pole crushed a section of chain-link fence and came to rest on the playing field just behind third base. There were no injuries.

At 6 p.m., a crew from the Hagerstown Light Department was at the stadium working to remove the pole from the field.

The Suns moved the start time of Saturday's game against the Greenville Tourists from 7:05 p.m. to 3:05 p.m.
