Following the heavy rains, Coach Calipari provided an update on tonight’s celebrity softball game via Twitter.
According to Coach Cal, the softball game will now be delayed an hour and 15 minutes to allow the field time to be ready. The new start time for those planning to attend is 7:15 PM. There were no confirmations about the home run derby, but it’s possible to still kick-off the event.
My celebrity softball game will have an hour and 15 minute rain delay. The VIP Ticket Package/Cats Conversation will go on as planned.

The skies are clearing up, and the Kentucky stars are coming out!
Ryan Lemond says the white team is stacked. Too bad it isn’t a flag football game…
