BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -
Wednesday's baseball game between UAB and Middle Tennessee, scheduled for 3:00 pm CST at Young Memorial Field,
has been cancelled because of wet field conditions.
No makeup date was announced.
It was the second rainout in as many days for the Blazers,
Tuesday's scheduled game vs. South Alabama was also called off because of steady rain.
Rainy weather has become much more of an issue for the UAB
program in recent days, because of the absence of a tarp to cover the infield
area. The severe weather of
Friday, Feb. 16 wreaked havoc upon the previous tarp at Young Memorial Field,
blowing it off the playing surface and shredding it in the fence and trees
outside the first base dugout.
A new tarp was shipped last week and is expected to arrive some time
Thursday (Mar. 1).
The Blazers will try to play baseball once more on Friday
(Mar. 2), as they open a three-game
weekend series with Tennessee Tech. Friday's game is scheduled for 3:00
