Twins game postponed

The American Legion Twins and South had their doubleheader postponed on Sunday. The game will now be played at noon at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage today. It will be a single, nine-inning game. The game was originally scheduled to be played at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai, but the Peninsula Oilers will be using the park on Monday and Tuesday, so the game had to be moved to Anchorage.

Twins manager John Butler looked on the bright side of the situation.

"At least we get one more game in at Mulcahy before the state tournament," Butler said.

The state tournament starts at Mulcahy on Friday.
