NOTE: As of 1PM today there was almost no shot at playing this game. Tracy Wood, wife of Rams manager Jeff Wood spent 4 hours sweeping puddles, raking and getting speedy dry on the field. At game time the field was virtually perfect. The Rams, Mariners and the ITL all appreciate her efforts along with Rams coach Mike Roberge who also got down there early to see to it that this game got played tonight!
