Cosmic Games Will Resume
As a response to the war between the United States and the Republic of Iraq, no regular Cosmic Baseball Association games have been played since March 19. The games will resume on May 1. Approximately 960 games (40 per team) have been missed. No decision on when or if these lost games will be played. If they are to be played the season would need at least a month's extension. |
Cosmic players are currently reporting back to their teams and will spend the balance of this month preparing to resume their competitions.
