Tuesday afternoon's BC baseball game against Rhode Island has been postponed due to field conditions and impending bad weather.
"After a nor'easter brought rain and snow into the Boston area on Friday, more rain soaked the region Monday. Tuesday afternoon's forecast calls for rain as well."
A rescheduled date and time will be announced at a later date.
Of course, this isn't the first time weather has interfered with this year's baseball schedule. Let us recap the lousy atmospheric conditions that the Eagles baseball team has had to endure already this season:
- March 16 -- at Bryant, Smithfield, R.I. -- Postponed due to inclement weather
- March 25-27 -- Virginia Tech, Chestnut Hill, Ma. -- Series moved to Kingston, R.I. due to weather / field conditions
- April 1 -- Miami, Chestnut Hill, Ma. -- Cancelled
- April 2 -- Miami, Chestnut Hill, Ma. -- Postponed due to snow, doubleheader played on Sunday
- April 5 -- Rhode Island, Chestnut Hill, Ma. -- Postponed due to field conditions / impending bad weather
For those keeping track at home, the weather has forced the Eagles to cancel one home ACC contest, postpone four games and play a "home" ACC series against the Hokies in Rhode Island. The Eagles' host Bryant tomorrow at Shea Field, but what are the chances that game is actually played? Oh, the folly of New England college baseball!
BC has just 13 home dates remaining, including nine ACC contests against Clemson, Virginia and N.C. State. The new Brighton Campus domed stadium can't come soon enough ...
