Several games have been postponed today in the first round of the high school baseball playoffs due to severe weather around the state.

Piedmont was one of the first to postpone its series this morning, moving its games to Saturday at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. due to the field not being in adequate playing condition.

“Our field is flooded,” Piedmont coach James Blanchard said. “It rained all last night and all day today.”

Class 3A Piedmont (20-7) will continue its series against Cleveland (14-9) on Monday at 4:30 if necessary.

Randolph County, which is 21-5 and ranked second in Class 2A, has also postponed its series with Fultondale (7-14) to Saturday at 1 and 4 p.m. Game three, if necessary, is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Monday.
