Field conditions once again postponed Hickory Post 48's first round playoff series against Kings Mountain Post 155.
The two teams were scheduled to play a doubleheader on Saturday at Henkel-Alley Field, but rains during the past couple of days dampened the field beyond safe playing condition.
Hickory (14-7, 10-6) and Kings Mountain (8-9, 8-7) will play a doubleheader at Kings Mountain on Sunday starting at 3 p.m.
Both games will be seven innings.
Another doubleheader of two seven-inning games is scheduled for Monday at Henkel-Alley Field at 5 p.m.
Should either team win the first three games of the best-of-five series, the second game of Monday's doubleheader will not be played.
A fifth game, if necessary, will take place on Tuesday at Henkel-Alley Field at 7 p.m. in a normal nine-inning game.
Below is an updated look at the playoff schedule:
Area IV playoffs (first round, best-of-five)
