Saint Leo, Fla. (March 14, 2008) – The Saint Leo University baseball team’s SSC home opener scheduled for Friday night at Southard Stadium has been cancelled. The teams will make up the game on Sunday at noon, and the three-game conference series will begin on Saturday with a 1:00 p.m. doubleheader.
The No. 29 Lions (19-7, 2-1 SSC) enter the weekend as winners of nine of their last 10 contests, and having defeated Eckerd twice earlier this season in non-conference outings. Saint Leo opened its SSC season last weekend in Melbourne, Fla. taking two out of three from Florida Tech.
The Tritons (9-15, 1-5 SSC) have lost five of the last six heading into this weekend’s series. Their lone SSC win came against Florida Tech.
