PALMETTO -- The dedication of Blackstone Park's Little League fields has been postponed after a booming summer thunderstorm hit the area late Tuesday afternoon, officials said.

The event, which was set to formally open three new baseball fields at the park in Palmetto, had been slated to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, followed by the first official Little League game.

"We'll have to re-schedule," said Nick Azzara, information outreach manager for Manatee County.
