Lousy spring weather affects WSU Baseball | News
We’re pretty sure every student that started their morning trek to classes in Pullman Wednesday morning cursed to the heavens above. Predicted winter weather showered upon the Palouse area with an expectation of two to six inches and blustery winds. The National Weather Service is reporting about one inch of snow accumulation in the Pullman area as of this morning.
The weather seems to be getting in the way of many activities in the region. Baseball is just one victim of recent weather. The university’s baseball team had to suspend and postpone four home games and two on the road during this season all because of bad weather.
Here’s a list of those affected games provided by Craig Lawson with the WSU Athletics communication department:
- Feb. 18 at Mississippi State (due to rain), played DH Feb. 19.
- Feb. 25 home vs. Nebraska Omaha (due to snow), tried to play DH Feb. 26, first game was suspended due to snow, regularly scheduled game postponed, finished suspended game and played Feb. 26 game both Feb. 27.
- March 20 home vs. Gonzaga (due to expected weather), we did not want Gonzaga to bus down from Spokane and not be able to play, game rescheduled for May 22.
- March 25 at UCLA (due to rain), made it up March 26.
- April 1 home vs. USC (due to expected weather), rescheduled for April 2, USC had travel issues that day, so it is now rescheduled for May 15.
The next three games are scheduled in Pullman. The Cougars are playing Seattle University on April 6th and 7th at 5:30 p.m. and April 7th at 2:00 p.m. Cross your fingers for nice weather. The Pullman area is expecting a chance of snow showers on Thursday morning which could turn into rain in the afternoon. Precipitation could continue through Friday night.
