The Eagles baseball ACC home opener against the top-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels has been moved from Chestnut Hill to Chapel Hill.
With midweek games against Holy Cross and Northeastern already cancelled this week due to snow, this weekend's home opener against top-ranked North Carolina has become the latest casualty of the elements.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference baseball series between No. 1 North Carolina and Boston College, originally scheduled to be played Friday through Sunday in Chestnut Hill, Mass., will be moved to Chapel Hill, N.C. due to unplayable field conditions after a recent snowfall in the Boston area.
The series will begin with a doubleheader on Saturday with first pitch set for 1 p.m. The second game will follow 40 minutes after the conclusion of game one. The finale is set for12 p.m. on Sunday.
The move of the North Carolina series from Chestnut Hill to Chapel Hill will push the Eagles' season-opening road trip to 22 games when it's all said and done. Boston College's home opener will now be next Wednesday, March 27 against Bryant.
The Tar Heels are the nation's top ranked college baseball team this week with an 18-1 overall record, 5-1 in ACC play with their lone loss coming last Friday to Miami (a 4-1 setback). North Carolina is coming off a 16-0 midweek victory over Princeton (yikes). Obviously giving up an ACC home series to the top ranked team in the country is not the most welcome news for a ball club rocking a 3-15 overall record.
