The weather continues to force changes to Southern’s baseball schedule.
The Jaguars have had almost as many postponements (two) as games played (three) so far, and they announced Tuesday that the home- and Southwestern Athletic Conference schedule-opening weekend series against Prairie View has been modified.
The series will begin with a single game at 1 p.m. Friday at Lee-Hines Field, followed by a doubleheader starting at noon Saturday. The Saturday schedule is unchanged, but the Friday game replaces one originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon because of weather concerns.
Southern (0-3) had its season opener at Nicholls State postponed from Feb. 17 to May 5 because of cold and rainy weather in Thibodaux. Similar conditions in Baton Rouge led to the postponement of another game against the Colonels that was scheduled for Tuesday at Lee-Hines. The schools are still working on a makeup date for that one.
