The wild April weather continues to have an impact on the Boston College baseball team. After cancelling two of three games against Florida State and postponing the game against Holy Cross for a second time, it now has an impact on the Beanpot.
Boston College was originally scheduled to play UMass today as part of the Beanpot's first round. That game was slated as a home game for the Minutemen, who hosted BC last week in a rescheduled game. Instead, the game will now take place at BC - next week.
UMass' Earl Lorden Field is a natural grass field, just as Boston College plays on grass at Shea Field. With the wild weather that included upwards of five inches of snow on Monday throughout the Commonwealth, the game was determined to be unplayable at Lorden Field, forcing the postponement of the game.
If there's a positive in all of this, it's that the Eagles will now play the Beanpot first round at home next week. First pitch will be at 3 PM.
As the weekend dawns, Boston College now faces the prospect of going into the Virginia series - with the defending national champions - having played one game since facing UConn and UMass on back-to-back days. They've also only played two true home games with record of 0-2. The Cavaliers are set to arrive for a three game series this weekend, beginning on Friday.
