College baseball’s long-awaited Opening Day is upon us, with two games already underway: No. 19 Louisiana-Lafayette grabbed an early 1-0 lead against Army, while Air Force and Navy were scoreless in the third inning. But along the Eastern Seaboard and even on the West Coast, nasty weather is putting a damper on the new start date (one look at the national Doppler radar at weather.com tells the story).
Already, Friday games have been postponed in Columbia, S.C. (East Carolina at South Carolina); Clemson, S.C. (Mercer at Clemson); Conway, S.C. (the IMICHotels.com INN-vitational hosted by Coastal Carolina); Spartanburg, S.C. (Marriott Baseball Classic hosted by USC Upstate); Rock Hill, S.C. (Johnny Gill Memorial Tournament hosted by Winthrop); Charlotte (Manhattan at Charlotte); Greensboro, N.C. (Kent State at UNC Greensboro); Raleigh, N.C. (Appalachian State at North Carolina State); Durham, N.C. (Iona at Duke); High Point, N.C. (Penn State at High Point); Louisville (Cleveland State at Louisville); Harrisonburg, Va. (Binghamton at James Madison); Charlottesville, Va. (Lehigh at Virginia); and Statesboro, Ga. (Boston College at Georgia Southern). And Bethune-Cookman’s opener against Temple has been postponed by the Northeast snowstorm that grounded the Owls’ flight.
Surely there are more cancellations on the way–if you were planning to attend a college baseball game anywhere north of Georgia, chances are you’ll have to wait for a doubleheader on Saturday.
