Baseball Home Opener Scheduled for Friday at Noon

BUENA VISTA, Va.—The Southern Virginia University baseball team will begin its 2014 home season with a game against Southern Vermont scheduled for Friday at noon at Parry McCluer High School.

The Knights will take on the Mountaineers, who were looking for a game after their series with Penn State Greater Allegheny was canceled this weekend. Southern Vermont sought out the Knights, who were also searching for another game following a slough of postponed or canceled games from previous weeks.

The decision was made to play the game late Thursday afternoon following a mutual agreement between the coaching staffs.

Southern Virginia was originally slated to host its home opener on Feb. 21 against Post University.

The first pitch on Friday is scheduled for noon at Parry McCluer High School.
