What looked like a beautiful day for baseball, turned into a postponement. NCAA Officials have postponed College World Series Finals game three.

After a nearly three hour weather delay the NCAA announced the game will be played Thursday.  

The game is now set to start at 12:08 p.m. Thursday. 

The announcement came after a three hour rain delay, which caused some fans to get anxious.

Some fans were upset after waiting through the rain delay once finding out the game would not be played.

The NCAA ruling on lightning delays is if lightning strikes within an eight-mile radius, the game is postponed for 30-minutes. Each time lightning strikes, the clock is reset.

The NCAA rule is games can not be played after 11 p.m. With tonight's continuous lightning strikes, as well as field preparation time and player warm-up time, the game would have likely exceeded the 11 p.m. cutoff time.
