RHINELANDER - The added snow the Northwoods got on Sunday means baseball, softball, girls soccer, outdoor track won't happen any time soon, unfortunately.
Over at Pioneer Park where Rhinelander softball plays, the parks department has tried to do all they can by plowing the snow off the field, but they can't do much more.
"We've just done it once this year, but we may have to skim the top layer. The grass is soft now because it has thawed a little bit, so we have to be really careful about the outfield," said Rhinelander Parks Director Jeremy Biolo.
So the grass is a factor at Pioneer Park. Over at Hodag Park where the baseball team plays, they have a whole other obstacle.
"Baseball wanted to get on down at Hodag Park also and because of the irrigation systems, we can't afford to blow off those diamonds. There's too much money invested in those sprinkler heads," said Biolo.
Biolo added that with this new snowfall, he'll probably talk to Rhinelander Athletic Director Brian Paulson about once a week. They'll try and figure out a way to get the teams outside as soon as possible.
