Rain washes out Happy’s game at JetBlue Park

Islanders' Tuesday game at Roy Hobbs World Series in Florida scrubbed

 

 

The good news: JetBlue Park has identical dimensions to Fenway Park, including a Green Monster in left field.

The bad news: Just like Fenway, JetBlue has no roof.

And that was bad news indeed for Happy’s Islanders on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at the Roy Hobbs World Series in Florida as rain postponed their afternoon game with the DC Mets.

“Five years coming here and not a drop of rain. Today (we’re) rained out at JetBlue Park. Damn!” said Kevin Dobbelsteyn of the Islanders, who had all been looking forward to playing in the Boston Red Sox’ brand new, 11,000-seat spring training facility in Fort Myers.

Dobbelsteyn noted all of Tuesday’s games were rained out, and the team was waiting to hear where, when or even if it would be rescheduled.

Should the skies clear up, the Islanders are scheduled to play at JetBlue on Wednesday afternoon against the Nova Scotia Monarchs.

The Islanders are 2-0 in the Legends (55-plus) division of the 24th annual Roy Hobbs World Series. They opened Sunday with a 22-4 win over Rhode Island Indians and edged Carolina Rockies 7-6 on Monday.

Playoffs are scheduled to start Thursday.
