Sunday was kind of a waste of time.
I drove to three of the five fields scheduled to have games, saw a total of one inning of baseball, then learned later that they actually played a full game up in Orleans.
I wanted to see Matt Barnes pitch for Wareham against Cotuit at 5 p.m., but that game was rained out so I drove to Yarmouth-Dennis and arrived just as Y-D manager Scott Pickler was packing up his car to leave.
Finally I drove back to Hyannis where Hyannis and Brewster skipped batting practice but planned to start at 7. The cold, steady, sideways-falling mist and strong wind forced them to stop after one full inning.
There was only one Major League scout at the game, and he put his radar gun away after seeing just a few pitches from both Hyannis' Seth Rosin and Brewster's Matt Lujan. He then stood there with a towel over his clipboard, and I decided it wasn't worthwhile to take notes anymore and have my notebook soaked through for the rest of the summer.
They called the game shortly thereafter.
