Rain Forces Leadoff Classic Reorganization, DePaul faces Massachusetts Today
COLUMBUS, Ga. Continued rains in the Columbus, Ga., area on Saturday morning have prompted major changes to the NFCA Division I Leadoff Classic schedule. All of the games originally scheduled for Saturday, February 28, have been cancelled and the tournament was reorganized as teams that traveled to the tournament by bus have left for home.
With the tournament restructured, the Blue Demons (9-3) will now face UMass at 5:30 p.m. (CST) today. Last season the two teams also met at the Leadoff Classic with DePaul using the international tiebreaker to pull out a 2-1 victory. DePaul pitcher Becca Heteniak earned the complete-game win for DePaul in 2008.
Sunday’s schedule will be released later today.
