Weather forces changes to weekend college baseball series
A high chance of rain in the forecast for Sunday has caused many Louisiana colleges to change their plans for weekend conference series.
LSU and Texas A&M will play a split doubleheader on Saturday at Alex Box Stadium, with games at 2 and 7 p.m. The night game will still be televised by ESPN2. There are no changes to Friday’s series opener.
Tulane and Wichita State will also play a Saturday split doubleheader at Greer Field at Turchin Stadium, with games at 2 and 6:30 p.m., or 45 minutes after the first game. Friday night’s series opener – which has been pushed back to a 7 p.m. first pitch – is being televised by CST.
The University of New Orleans and Southeastern Louisiana are playing a three-game series at Maestri Field. The Privateers and Lions begin the series Friday one hour later than originally planned at 7:30 p.m. and a doubleheader follows Saturday at 2 p.m. with the final game of the three moved up from Sunday.
Northwestern State announced Thursday that its series with Nicholls in Natchitoches had been altered. The teams will play a 3 p.m. doubleheader Friday followed by a single game at 2 p.m. Louisiana Tech announced similar plans for its series with UTSA in Ruston, while McNeese’s weekend set at Central Arkansas also will feature a Friday twinbill and Saturday single game.
UL Lafayette plays host to Arkansas State at Russo Park. No schedule changes have been announced for that series as of yet.
