Dear fans, spectators, & ticket holders,

Please note that both of today's (Saturday 2 December) scheduled games against the Brisbane Bandits at Melbourne Ballpark have been cancelled.

Despite some early optimism and success last night in defying mother nature, the relentless rain and forecasts for later tonight has unfortunately made the field unplayable today.

We are sincerely thankful for all of the fans and supporters that made the trip out to Altona today. There's a reason we call you the greatest fans in the land and we are truly humbled by all of the people (despite the forecasts), braved the impending weather and came out to support the team.

Unfortunately, that means that our annual Women's All-Star game has been forced to move to Springvale Baseball Club with a new start time of 10.30am.

Anyone who has purchased a ticket for today's games (Saturday 2 December) will be able to redeem their tickets at any other Melbourne Aces regular season home game this season. If you had purchased reserve seating, please get in contact with the team to arrange another reserved seat ticket.

At this stage we are now scheduled to play two seven inning games tomorrow (Sunday 3 December) with the first game scheduled to start at 11am (weather permitting of course), and the gates opening at 10am.

We apologise for the unfortunate events of tonight but unfortunately sometimes Mother Nature just doesn't want to play ball!

If you have questions or queries, please don't hesitate to get incontact with a team member who would be more than happy to assist.
