COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The NCAA baseball regional between South
Carolina and Stetson has been delayed by a severe thunderstorm that
knocked out power to Carolina Stadium.
The game was halted at 8:24 p.m. Sunday with South Carolina
leading 4-1 in the top of the fifth inning. Most of the crowd had
filed out before the storm hit but some were under the covered
Winds were so strong that they blew part of the tarp off the
infield. Motorized carts that groundskeepers put in place to anchor
the covering also got pushed around.
Officials are waiting for the power to return and the storm to
pass before trying to resume.
