SAN FRANCISCO – Heavy rains projected to last all day Friday in the Bay Area has prompted officials to postpone the Ohio State at No. California baseball game scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. (EDT) at Evans Diamond.
The game will be made up Saturday at 2 p.m. EDT (which is 11 a.m. local time) and it will be immediately followed by Game 2 in the series. The teams will conclude the scheduled three-game set Sunday at 4 p.m. (EDT).
So, what to do with a rainy off day in California? Coach Greg Beals and assistant Chris Holick went to the ball park, anyway, with the team’s position players to get some batting practice work in Cal’s batting cages.
And pitching coaches Mike Stafford and Josh Newman put the pitchers through a water workout in the hotel’s pool.
Both workouts are expected to be completed in time for the team to gather in rooms and common areas to watch the much anticipated and much talked-about on this trip NCAA first round game between Ohio State and Texas-San Antonio. Tipoff time out west is at a perfect time: 1:40 p.m….right after lunch.
