Due to expected inclement weather on Sunday, the last two games of the University of Houston Baseball team’s series against ECU have been adjusted.

Following Friday night’s series opener, the two teams will conclude their matchup in a doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Don Sanders Field at Darryl & Lori Schroeder Park. The second game of the doubleheader will start approximately 45 minutes after the end of the first.

Fans who have purchased tickets to the initially scheduled Saturday and Sunday contests can use their tickets towards the doubleheader. Those who purchased tickets to either game and are unable to make the doubleheader can call the University of Houston Athletics Ticket Office at 713-GO-COOGS (462-6647) to exchange their tickets for a later home game.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens today considering that it’s already raining in the area. Lot of rain expected for around 1 pm, but it’s currently projected to be north and west of downtown. UH may stay dry, but we’ll see.

We have been spoiled the past few years with pretty good teams…this remains a rebuilding year. I thought when Graham retired at Rice we would dominate recruiting in the local area. Hasn’t happened yet. Rice is still recruiting well while Texas, Tech, TCU and Agy continue to take their pick…
Come on Coogs, we can turn this thing around in the near future…
