The final day of the 2009 NFCA Division I Leadoff Classic has been rained out, the NFCA announced on Sunday morning.
Ohio State completed the weekend with a 3-0 record, leading all teams. Northwestern and UMass both finished with 2-0 records while Alabama won the lone game it played at the South Commons complex before the area was hit with a large storm that blanketed the area for nearly 24 hours, leaving behind over three inches of rain.
The final two rounds of games on Friday and the entire Saturday schedule were cancelled, and roughly half of the 21 teams in the tournament traveled home mid-day on Saturday. The remaining 11 teams completed a modified schedule of six games on Saturday night before additional overnight rains rendered the outfields on all fields unplayable.
