Baseball home schedule shifts to Saturday-Sunday

LEBANON, Tenn. – Rain forecast for Friday has shifted Cumberland baseball’s home opening date as well as opponent, with the Phoenix now playing Saturday and Sunday against Madonna University at Ernest L. Stockton Field-Woody Hunt Stadium.

Forecasts call for 50-70 percent chance of rain Friday in the middle Tennessee area, pushing the weekend series to Saturday and Sunday. Taylor University cannot play on Sundays per school rules but head coach Woody Hunt received several calls Monday morning from teams looking for games and worked out a four-game series against the Crusaders.

Saturday’s doubleheader begins at Noon CT and Sunday’s twinbill starts at 12:30 p.m. CT. Cumberland plays at Bryan College on Wednesday at 3 p.m. CT before opening the home schedule this weekend.
