(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte High School baseball game today will not start on time.
Initially, the game at Merrillville was supposed to begin at 4:30 p.m. However, the team won’t be able to leave La Porte until 4 p.m. because that’s when the next school bus is available after taking children home from school.
La Porte High School Athletic Director Steve Santana said shortages of buses and drivers are a problem sometimes here and in other school districts.
“It’s pretty common actually over the past several years with schools having transportation issues,” Santana said.
Santana says the game against the Pirates should start sometime after 5 p.m. The Slicers are 19 and 3 on the season.
