Winter Haven No Haven From Rain; Baseball Cancelled Sat.

Feb. 27, 2010

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - Wet field conditions and limited field availability forced the cancellation of Illinois State's RussMatt Invitational contest against Northeastern at Chain of Lakes Park in Winter Haven, Fla.

The Redbirds (1-2) and Huskies (2-0) were scheduled to play at 1 p.m. CT but showers throughout the morning and early afternoon led to a suspension of Northeastern's early game against St. Bonaventure. By the time that contest resumed and finished on a different field there was not enough daylight to play a complete game.

Illinois State will play a pair of games Sunday, starting with a 9 a.m. match-up with St. Bonaventure. The Redbirds will then take on Duquesne at 12:30 p.m. Both games will be played at the main field at Chain of Lakes Stadium.
