Baseball To Play As Scheduled
Feb. 20, 2010
TUCSON, Ariz. - The University of Arizona baseball game scheduled for 6 p.m. this evening against Utah Valley will be played as scheduled despite early afternoon rains.
A round of moderate to heavy rains dampened the Tucson area just after Noon on Saturday, but Jerry Kindall Field at Frank Sancet Stadium was covered with a tarp and the field will be in playing condition for the scheduled 6 p.m. start assuming no additional significant rain comes down.
The Arizona softball double-header against Missouri was cancelled on Saturday after the rains suspended play for the first game, which was set for Noon. The teams will instead play a double-header on Sunday.
The Arizona baseball team defeated Utah Valley in the season opener for both teams on Friday night, 8-1. The teams close the series on Sunday at Noon.
Kyle Simon is expected to make the start on the mound this evening for the Wildcats.
