Granville, WV - Tonight's scheduled game between the Black Bears and the Aberdeen Ironbirds has been postponed due to inclement weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Friday, July 12.

The first game of the doubleheader will begin at 5:00 p.m., with gates opening at 4:00 p.m. The second game will begin approximately 30 minutes after the first game ends. Friday Night fireworks presented by Howard Hanna will follow immediately upon the conclusion of the second game.
