College baseball coaches are used to dealing with bad weather but North Iowa Area Community College coach Travis Hergert has never seen it this bad. Hergert has been involved in college coaching since 2004 and nearly two months into the season his NIACC team has yet to play a home game in Mason City.
Hergert says spring snow is not all that uncommon and points to a freak storm in May back in 2013. The difference is in past years to snow has rapidly melted.
Hergert says it is not only the games that have been postponed but also the conditions games are played in.
The Trojans are scheduled to play a doubleheader at Kirkwood Community College on Tuesday. Hergert says the good news is that if they can get a break in the weather they should be able to play their entire schedule.
Hergert has led the Trojans to three trips to the NJCAA Division II World Series in the last five years. They are 18-17 overall this season.
