Baseball is dependent on the weather. A sudden thunderstorm or windy conditions might delay a game. A game between the Worcester Tornados and the Newark Bears may be the only game ever delayed because of debt. The game started an hour late after representatives from a local cleaning company came to take possession of the Tornados equipment because they had not been paid. The company claimed they had not been paid in a year and received a court order to seize some the team’s assets to cover the bill. The team promised to pay the $5,500 it owed and the game began after the cleaning company agreed to the arrangement. Court records show the Tornados are facing at least two other lawsuits because of unpaid bills. That may be the least of their concerns however, because the minor league team was 29 games out of first place after they lost to the Bears that night. – Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
