RHINELANDER - Winter looks like it's finally behind us, which means spring sports can finally start heading outdoors. And nothing says warm weather like the crack of the bat.
But in northern Wisconsin, players and coaches may end up waiting a long time for that warmer weather to come--and an even longer time for it to stick around for a while.
"It's been a rough spring," says Rhinelander High School softball head coach DJ DeMeyer. "We got outside early. We were fortunate enough for the field to open up. We got out for a couple practices--and then we had the snow."
