Rice’s opening game of the Baton Rouge Regional versus Southeastern Louisiana at 7 tonight at Alan Box Stadium has been postponed due to rain and the fact that the first game of the regional, LSU-Utah Valley, has not yet started.
The LSU-UVU (Game 1) has not been postponed at this time (6:30 p.m. CT Friday). Rice will play Southeastern (Game 2) tomorrow with a start time yet to be announced.
The Owls are leaving the hotel now for indoor batting practice. We have some BP footage for you!
And hats off to our Chuck Pool. He’s laid out some possible scenarios for the regional moving forward:
1. If Games 1 (LSU-UVU) and 2 (Rice-Southeastern) on Friday are both cancelled … play Games 1 and 2 on Saturday, play Games 3, 4 and 5 on Sunday and Games 6 and 7 (if necessary) on Monday.
2. If Game 1 is started and suspended before being completed on Friday, resume Game 1 and play Game 2 on Saturday, Games 3, 4 and 5 on Sunday and Games 6 and 7 (if necessary) on Monday.
3. If Game 2 on Friday is cancelled, play Games 2, 3 and 4 on Saturday, Games 5 and 6 on Sunday, and Game 7 on Monday (if necessary).
4. If Game 1 is completed on Friday and Game 2 is started but suspended before being completed on Friday, resume Game 2 and play Games 3 and 4 on Saturday, Games 5 and 6 on Sunday and Game 7 (if necessary) on Monday.
Got it? Good, because there will be a quiz on this later.
