The Pioneer League game between the Idaho Falls Gems and Butte Copper Kings was suspended in the seventh inning Saturday because of snow. "It was 88 degrees yesterday, so I'd say, yes, this was unusual," said Mark Ruckwardt, Butte's general manager. "Just another crazy day in minor league baseball, I guess." Skies were overcast at the start of the game at Alumni Coliseum, which is at an altitude of 5,800 feet in the Rocky Mountains.
