Post 58 playoff game forfeited

Rocky Mount Coleman-Pitt Post 58 picked up a win without even hitting the field Sunday.

It was supposed to play New Bern Post 24 in the opening round of the Area I East Legion Baseball playoffs tonight at home. But New Bern, due to vacations and members playing on summer travel teams, won't be able to field a team for the contest. 

Therefore, it has forfeited the contest - leaving Post 58 1-up in the best-of-three series.

But it has not been determined where Game 2 will be played. As the top seed, Post 58 should get at least one home game (gate and concessions), so right now it's not known whether Post 58 will travel to New Bern Monday or play a home game that evening.

We hope to have that info shortly!
