Brown Announces Makeup Games & Changes to Schedule

April 17, 2007

Providence, RI - The Brown baseball team announced a series of changes to its remaining schedule on Wednesday. Several games that were rained out, or otherwise postponed, have been rescheduled, and other games have been moved to accommodate those changes.

Despite the heavy rains over the past three days, the Bears will now try to get a doubleheader in against Connecticut on Wednesday, beginning at 2 p.m., instead of the regularly-scheduled single game. This weekend's key series with Harvard, which is tied with Brown atop the Red Rolfe Division at 7-3, has two new start times. Saturday's game has been pushed back to 12:15 for the Dedication Ceremony for the renovated Murray Stadium, with Sunday's double-dip being pushed back to 1 p.m. to allow for travel time.

Previously postponed doubleheaders with Dartmouth and Maine have been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 25 and Tuesday, May 1, respectively. To accommodate those games, previously scheduled contests with Holy Cross and Central Connecticut State have been pushed back one day, with the doubleheader against the Crusaders changed to a single, nine-inning game. In between those weeks will be the Bears' four-game set with travel partner Yale. Saturday's doubleheader in New Haven will still be played at 1 p.m., but Friday's doubleheader in Providence has been moved to that Sunday, and will now be played at 1 p.m.
