Soggy Weather doesn't dampen TCS spirits

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The Triple Crown Sports baseball tournament picked Myrtle Beach as its home this summer, but didn't exactly expect the type of weather that there has been. A tournament record 275 youth baseball teams were on the Grand Strand from 29 different states but there have been significant weather delays or cancellations for the last few days. There are still some teams that are here, and a new leg of the tournament begins this weekend for other age groups.

So, after another short delay on Friday, teams were able to get back on the field, and they were thinking positively.

​"Well, [ the weather] really hasn't been that bad, other than the fact that we lost a little beach time," said Ryan O'day, owner and head coach of team "Dugout". "It's been a lot better than when we were in Florida, for example, two weeks ago. We had lightening delays. Games took 10 hours. Here, the staff is getting us on the field, getting us to play. We've been playing through the rain, not everybody likes that, but we are able to play."

The Triple Crown Summer Nationals in Myrtle Beach began on July 16 and are set to conclude July 30.
