NEW ORLEANS - Due to weather-related travel issues for Sacred Heart, Tulane baseball's three-game weekend series against the Pioneers this weekend will be pushed back a day, with games being played at 1 p.m. on Saturday March 1, Sunday, March 2 and Monday, March 3.
Due to the snow and ice from the Winter Storm Titan in the northeast, the Pioneers had travel issues making it down to New Orleans in time for the series-opener, originally set for Friday evening.
"This allows our fans to enjoy all the great parades on Friday night, as well as enjoying a long weekend of Tulane Baseball," stated Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson. "With no parades during the day on Monday, we are proclaiming Greer Field at Turchin Stadium `Lundi Gras Central' at 1pm."
All three contests will be broadcast on the home of Tulane baseball for the 2014 season, 88.3 FM WRBH. Live audio and video will also be made available through the All-Access pass at TulaneGreenWave.com. Tim Grubbs will have the call for Saturday and Sunday's games, and the Voice of the Green Wave, Todd Graffagnini, will be in the booth for Monday's tilt.
Should Saturday's contest encroach on the 4 p.m. CT broadcast of the Tulane women's basketball game at Southern Miss, the baseball game will move mid-game to All-Access only.
The Rosen Lot behind right field will be open at 10 a.m. CT for all three games for $5.
Any fan holding tickets for Friday night's re-scheduled baseball game versus Sacred Heart may choose one of two options. Fans may choose to credit those tickets to their account and select a game to use that credit for later in the season, or fans may directly exchange those tickets for the re-scheduled game or any game of their choosing except soldout games.
For more information on tickets, call 504-861-WAVE (9283), or visit the James W. Wilson, Jr. Center's first floor ticket office.
