Orioles yet to make weekend rain plans

October 03, 1991|By Kent Baker

Baltimore Orioles general manager Roland Hemond said the club has not yet formulated a contingency plan in case one of the three final games at Memorial Stadium is rained out.

"We haven't discussed that at all," he said. "We always look at the positive side. The whole season we've only had a couple [of] situations like that, so the odds are on our side. We look for it to shine through Sunday."

The weekend weather forecast says otherwise, but Hemond said: "That is a long-range forecast. Showers might not come at the time you're playing the games."

Hemond said that if it comes to the possibility of a doubleheader Sunday, which would push back the post-game ceremonies until a late hour, "we would probably consult the American League on what they propose" about rescheduling.

"It could rain during the night and not affect us," he said. "We don't want to think about a rain-out."
