Motown-MCA Fixture Postponed: Batting Line-up Too Explosive?

The Motown-MCA fixture  against Canton C. C., due to be played on Saturday 16 June, was postponed by order of the Canton Fire Marshall, after it was realized that a fireworks display had been scheduled for the Canton ground on the same day as the MichCA 40-0vers match. Motown-MCA’s advance guard arrived at the ground at 9.45 today, only to find a truck full of highly-explosive fireworks in the outfield, together with a dozen men charged with setting up the display, which is part of Canton Liberty Fest 2012.  There were apologies for the double booking, but nothing could be done.  Motown-MCA repaired to a local restaurant for a buffet lunch and then headed home, some looking forward to today’s Euro 2012 matches on TV, others to an afternoon visit to the Lyon Oaks nets.  Rumors that the Fire Marshall had described Motown-MCA’s batting line-up as “too explosive to bat near a truck-load of industrial-strength fireworks” have yet to be confirmed.
