August 30, 2006 - South Atlantic League (SAL) - Columbus Catfish News Release

Columbus, GA - Due to unplayable field conditions the Columbus Catfish versus Rome Braves game Wednesday has been cancelled. Steady rain during the afternoon over-saturated the field. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader beginning Thursday at 5:00pm. The two games will wrap up the 2006 Catfish home schedule.

During the evening the Catfish will celebrate the accomplishments of the 2006 World Champion Columbus Northern Little League team. As a salute to Columbus, Georgia little leaguers, the Catfish will host Little League Appreciation Night. All area little leaguers who suit up in uniform will get a free general admission ticket.

The Catfish will also be joined by Children's Miracle Network at The Medical Center. Families of CMN and their sponsors should contact CMN for tickets. Columbus Regional Hospital employees get a $3 general admission ticket when showing their ID badge at the ticket window. During the game members of Phi Mu will be on hand to raise funds for CMN.

Monday afternoon three Catfish players visited Columbus Regional Hospital. Pitchers Joe Jones, Dave Preziosi and Jordan Pratt toured the high-risk nursery and the children's ward. Their afternoon activities ranged from chatting about baseball to playing with dolls, all to the delight of CMN youngsters.

After Thursday's doubleheader Columbus goes on the road for one last four-game series against the Charleston RiverDogs. For tickets or more information call (706) 571-8866 or visit
