St. Petersburg Catholic's baseball team will be forced to play games in the afternoon after the lights on the field were damaged in last week's storm.

The rightfield lights came down onto the gravel parking lot between the baseball and football fields on March 31, Barons athletic director John Gerdes said. A power line sagged onto the field. Gerdes said the power has since been shut off and the school is waiting for an electrician to clear the line. But the lights will not be able to repaired before the end of the season.

St. Petersburg Catholic is playing home games this week at the Naimoli Complex. The Barons were supposed to play Berkeley Prep on Tuesday, but the game was postponed until Wednesday because of inclement weather. The rest of SPC's home games will be played on campus, but the time will be moved from 6 p.m. to 5.
