“When that happens and you have some success, it helps build team chemistry.’’
Before the second game started, Hannibal manager Jay Hemond protested the contest because of the late start — 9:40 p.m., set by Prospect League umpires Scott Mason and Eric Harmon when the first game ended at 8:49 p.m.
“I guess some information got crossed up between their coaching staff and the umpires,’’ Watson said. “That’s all I know. I don’t know how the protest situation works.’’
If Prospect League officials uphold the Hannibal protest, the game would have to be re-played at a later date.
