Groundsmen made a desperate attempt to get the game on, using forks and spades at the Bescot Stadium.
But following an inspection from the ref, a decision was made to postpone the fixture.
A BBC reporter claims when the ball landed there was “an audible plop”.
Supporters were left unhappy with the late timing of the decision as one raged: “Pathetic calling the game off when fans are ten mins from the ground.”
More reacted: “Terrible communication tonight – do better.”
Another added: “Shocking from Walsall only announcing an inspection at 6:15.”
A fourth wrote: “Shame for the fans who have already travelled.”
It is currently unclear when the match will be replayed.
Walsall sit 15th in League Two and Morecambe are 12th in the table.
It was not the only EFL game scrapped tonight due to torrential rain, the clash between Burton Albion and Cheltenham was also called off.
