CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Due to heavy showers and thunderstorms throughout the Charlotte region, Thursday night’s Conference USA series-opener with Southern Miss has been postponed. The two teams will make up the contest as part of a doubleheader on Friday beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Over a half an inch of rain had already fallen on Phillips Field at Robert and Mariam Hayes Stadium in just a matter of hours making the field unplayable for Thursday night. An 80% chance of rain and heavy thunderstorms are still in the forecast throughout the night forcing the postponement with current field conditions.
The senior day ceremony that was scheduled prior to the one single game on Friday at 3:00 p.m. will now take place before first pitch of the 11:00 a.m. series-finale on Saturday. The Niners will honor Grant Dunnegan, Jason Harris, Brock Hudgens, Jordan Hudson, Ryan Mas, Hunter May, Corey Roberts and Corbin Shive before the game.
