LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland’s baseball game scheduled for Monday evening at Freed-Hardeman has been canceled and will not be made-up because of heavy rains overnight in the Henderson area. It marks the seventh game this season lost to or changed because of weather.
The Bulldogs host fifth-ranked Georgia Gwinnett on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Ernest L. Stockton Field-Woody Hunt Stadium, as the club continues a nine-game homestand. CU faces the University of Pikeville this weekend at home as well and the program is holding a 10-year anniversary celebration for the 2004 national championship team on Friday and Saturday as well. Members of the team will be recognized between games of Saturday’s doubleheader.
SCHEDULE NOTES: Cumberland has moved back the start of Tuesday’s game against Georgia Gwinnett to 3 p.m. to help the field dry a little more after the overnight rains in the Lebanon area and the small chance of more showers this evening.
Cumberland has also added a home game against Bryan College on Wednesday, April 30 at 3 p.m. because of all of the lost contests to this point in the season. The Bulldogs are allowed to play 55 regular season games and even with this addition, would play 53 with the rest of the outings on the remaining schedule.
