While many people across Kansas appreciate the late-July rain, it forced the National Baseball Congress World Series to do something unusual Sunday night. It scheduled non-stop games all night.
The NBC World Series already had "Baseball Round the Clock" planned for next weekend. But that schedule has an early-morning break of several hours. Monday morning went beyond that, with games moved to 3:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. to get back on schedule after rain delays.
The "feature game" of Sunday night didn't start until 3 a.m. And it ran long, so the 5:30 game actually started around sunrise at 6:30. After that, the regularly scheduled resume with a game at 10:00 a.m.
10:00 AM Game 13 - Kansas Cannons vs. Cape Girardeau (MO) Capahas
1:00 PM Game 19 - Ozark (MO) Generals vs. Denver (CO) Cougars
4:00 PM Game 18 - Liberal (KS) Bee Jays vs. Houston (TX) Tuzos
7:00 PM Game 17 - Tulsa (OK) Braves vs. Winner Game 9
10:00 PM Game 20 - Austin (TX) Gold Sox vs. Loser Game 13
