What a difference a week makes!

Last weekend saw perfect baseball weather in Stockholm, warm but not too hot. This weekend half of Sweden’s baseball games were snowed out, and two more were called on account of rain.

And Sunday’s opening junior series in Stockholm was played in the rain and temperatures of around 4 degrees Celsius.

There was snow in Dalarna Saturday, stopping Stockholm’s two games in Leksand and Alby’s games in Rättvik. Farther south the doubleheader between visiting Karlskoga and Gefle was rained out.

The only games played were Tranås at Sundbyberg, which the home team won 7-2 and 8-7 (10 innings). The twin victories put Sundbyberg into a tie for third place with Tranås, with 3 victories and 3 loses each.

Stockholm remains in first place with a 4-0 record, followed by Rättvik at 3-1.
