Rain Delays Whitman's Baseball Opener

News Release Date:
Friday, February 6

WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Steady rain in the Los Angeles area over the past 24 hours has forced postponement of today's baseball game between Whitman and Occidental colleges.

Weather and field conditions permitting, the two teams will play two games Saturday, starting at 11 a.m. A third game is slated for 11 a.m Sunday.

Occidental opened its season last weekend with a three-game sweep of La Sierra University. Whitman made the trip to Occidental to play its first games of the season.
