The North squad was leading, 2-0, with bases loaded for the South. A fly ball to right field was not caught due to the low visibility, and two runs scored, tying the game at 2. At that point, umpires huddled behind home plate with league officials and the game managers and determined the fog created conditions too dangerous to continue the game. It will not be re-scheduled.
The Altoona Curve sent six all-stars to the game: infielders Neil Walker and Steven Pearce, catcher Brian Peterson, and pitchers Luis Munoz, Matt Peterson, and David Davidson.
The Curve return to action Thursday to open a 7-game homestand at Blair County Ballpark. It starts with a 4-game series against Akron.
The homestand will be highlighted by two Retro-Celebrity Series Appearances, but will also include performances by two highly popular traveling entertainment groups, two Curve giveaways and a Sunday fireworks extravaganza.
