Record rain in April followed by powerful storms at the beginning of May are causing a lot of problems for Spring outdoor sports teams - especially baseball and soccer.

The problem is the fields are so wet that they are unusable and crews cannot install the needed equipment or mow.

Adult sports are also affected with Grover Cleveland Golf Course in Buffalo closed because of water.  Erie County said pass holders will be honored at Elma Meadows.  There is no estimate when Grover Cleveland will open, but with another powerful rain storm expected over the next few days, it is unlikely to open anytime soon

7 Eyewitness News Reporter Ed Reilly was out today in various parts around the Metro area to see how bad some of the conditions are.
