Baseball Series against Eckerd Canceled because of Rain

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Over an inch and a half of rain during the last 24 hours along with an additonal line of storms that passed over the Saint Leo University campus late Sunday morning forced the cancellation of the already-rescheduled conference doubleheader against Eckerd College.

While the rain has moved through the area, and clear skies are forecast for the remainder of Sunday, the field was left unplayable without significant drying time.

The schools will look for possible dates to reschedule, but no make-up date has been announced.

Saint Leo will now have almost a week off before returning to Sunshine State Conference action when they face Rollins College in a three game series over Graduation Weekend.  The first game will get underway at 6 p.m. on Thursday night at Southard Stadium.
