The Minnesota State High School League is making a temporary change to their rule book.  For the rest of 2018, softball and baseball teams can now play two, five-inning games.  This will allow teams to play more games in a weather-shortened season.

The Austin Packers are one of the lucky ones.  They are able to play all of their home games inside a dome.
