PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Baseball) – With snow still on the ground in the Portsmouth area, the Shawnee State baseball team has made several alterations to its weekend slate. Previously scheduled to open the home slate at Branch Rickey Park, the Bears will now travel to Tennessee for four weekend games.
SSU will begin the weekend at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday, where the squad will take on Indiana University Southeast in a single game at 4 p.m. CT.
On Saturday, the club will head south to Somerville, Tenn., for games against Indiana Tech at 4:30 p.m. CT and Brescia University at 7 p.m. CT. Both games will be played at Fayette Academy in Somerville. Finally, the Bears will close the weekend with a single game versus Indiana Tech at 10 a.m. CT on Sunday – again playing at Fayette Academy.
Two more alterations have been made to the schedule, as single games with the University of Rio Grande scheduled for this week and next have been canceled. Instead the two squads will meet for a pair of doubleheaders which were previously scheduled for single games.
The RedStorm will travel to Portsmouth on March 31 for a twinbill beginning at 1 p.m., while the Bears head to Rio Grande for two games on April 14. Those games are slated to begin at 3 p.m.
