Weather Hurting Those on the Diamond

BELLEVUE (FOX 42) – It may have reached 80 degrees on Monday, but there is still a threat of cold weather later this week. This is bad news for some, especially high school baseball players who have already lost most of the season.

In total, the Bellevue West Thunderbirds baseball team has had 10 games that have been affected by weather. Even the boys and girls soccer team have had four games affected or canceled by weather. This has been a rare spring for Bellevue West Athletic Director Kevin Broderick.

"It is bad for the kids cause they can't get the games in," he said.

One of those student athletes is Cale Svehla who was just hoping to get more games in this spring before summer ball begins.

"When you see snow on the ground you are like – and then you have to go back inside and hit in the cages," Svehla said.

Even some of the fans at Monday's game against Omaha North are tired of the weather.

Willie Nezum, grandfather of an Omaha North Senior, said, "We had coats on and we couldn't get warm, man it was cold, it was cold."
