MOREHEAD, Ky. — For the second time this season, a Morehead State softball doubleheader was affected by weather as Tuesday’s meet with Butler was postponed.
“We have postponed Tuesday’s softball doubleheader against Butler due to wet field conditions,” said Paul Rhodes, Morehead State Tickets and Facility Manager. “We are working to find a date later in the season to reschedule these games.”
Rain on Sunday and Monday, along with cold weather, forced Rhodes’ hand.
Morehead State (0-13) also had to cancel a Feb. 22 home doubleheader with Shawnee State due to rain and wet field conditions.
Butler (12-7) last traveled to play at University Field in April 2012.
The home opener is now scheduled for Wednesday, March 16 against rival Eastern Kentucky. It will be a one-off game with a first pitch scheduled for 3 p.m. It will air on ESPN+.
MSU returns to action this weekend for four games at the Purple-Gold Invitational in Greenville, North Carolina. The Eagles take on Bryant (10 a.m.) and Rider (12:30 p.m.) on Saturday, then meet Rider (11:30 p.m.) and host East Carolina (2 p.m.) again on Sunday. The ECU contest will air on ESPN+.
