Rescheduled Softball Games Moving Off Campus

The rescheduled softball games for Eastern Mennonite University not only have new dates, but now will also have new locations.  Due to exam schedules at EMU, both makeup doubleheaders need to be played in the evening, thus forcing them to an off campus field which would have lights.

Tuesday’s twinbill with ODAC-leading Virginia Wesleyan will now be played at James Madison University in Harrisonburg.  First pitch is at 6:00pm at Veterans Memorial Park.  Admission will be free.

Wednesday’s contest with Randolph-Macon College will be played at Harrisonburg High School with a start time of 5:00pm.  The date with the Yellow Jackets will also be Senior Recognition for EMU.

Rains over the weekend forced the postponement of both conference doubleheaders.  The games needed to be played quickly, as the ODAC Tournament starts on Friday in Salem.  The Lady Royals are currently 23-9 overall and sixth in the ODAC at 7-7.
