The first week of July featured torrential rainstorms that washed out many of the events the Colts had scheduled last week. The team began the week on the road with a game against the Denver Bats on Tuesday. Rain was in the forecast and the skies grew increasing dark as the game moved into the later innings, but the Colts raced to a huge 16-6 victory and set their sights on Friday’s home games.
The Arvada Colts were scheduled to host one of their largest home games ever on Friday with Safety Night sponsored by Personal Benefit Services Wealth Management scheduled to occur. Unfortunately a frustrating persistent drizzle of rain kept the field soaked and many fans indoors as the night approached. The organizers hoped to wait out the storm, but the rain continued and extinguished the abundant excitement surrounding the event. The game was postponed shortly before its scheduled start time.
The Colts then hit the road on Saturday for a game against Impact Sports. The heroes of Arvada stomped all over the competition and left with a convincing 5-2 victory. The rain returned later on in the weekend and only intensified, causing a complete washout of both Colts games scheduled for Sunday. Heavy storms dropped tremendous amounts of water on the city of Arvada, leaving the organizers of Sunday’s event with no choice but to postpone the scheduled games. The team currently stands with a 25-8 overall season record as of Monday July 9. The team is also in first place in the Rocky Mountain Baseball League.
Although this past weekend was a compete loss for the team, the upcoming week is going to be very busy for the organization as numerous rescheduled games are set to occur. The team will spring out of the rainstorms and into action on Tuesday for a game against the Denver Cougars. The Colts will then return home to Long Lake Ranch on Wednesday for a rescheduled doubleheader against the Rock Hounds. The event will be known as “The Arvada Colts Weekday Doubleheader” and is set to begin at 5:45 p.m. if weather conditions cooperate. Thursday will see the team hit the road for a game against the Slammers before returning home on Friday for the largest event in the team’s history.
