In the words of the late Ernie Banks, "Let's play two."
Boston College and Florida State will attempt to play a doubleheader for their two remaining series games on Saturday, per a release from the Eagles athletic department. The games, which were originally slated for 1:30 PM on Saturday and 1 PM on Sunday, will now begin at 11 AM on Saturday due to the weather forecast for the Boston area.
Boston will experience rain and snow throughout the weekend from Saturday straight through to Sunday night and into Monday. The forecast for Saturday is calling for a 100% chance of rain with cumulative totals around half of an inch. The chance of rain will diminish slightly into Saturday night (down to 70%), but the occasional rain shower will still drop some precipitation onto the natural grass at Shea Field.
Sunday's forecast is calling for 100% chance of morning snow with wind and accumulations anywhere from a dusting to three inches in the Boston area.
BC and FSU played to a 3-0 decision in favor of the Seminoles on Friday. Despite having rained throughout the preceding overnight and with threatening skies throughout the game, all nine innings were completed in just about two and a half hours.
UPDATE: The rains are here, so the intended start time of today's games has been pushed back to 2:30 PM.
