Penn State Baseball’s Big Ten Tournament Opener Postponed Due To Inclement Weather

Update, 9:34 p.m. — Penn State baseball will play Iowa at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 26, the conference announced Wednesday night.

The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.

Penn State baseball will have to wait another day for its first Big Ten Tournament game in 10 years. The conference announced Wednesday that the Nittany Lions’ opening contest against Iowa has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The game was originally set for 10 a.m. on Wednesday but got pushed to a 6 p.m. start time because of the threat of rain. Now, the two teams will have to wait until Thursday, May 26, to hit the diamond, with a new start time yet to be determined.

On Wednesday, the host site in Omaha, Nebraska, experienced almost half an inch of rain, had temperatures in the 50s, and wind gusts up to 34 miles per hour, per AccuWeather. All of Wednesday’s Big Ten Tournament games were postponed as a result.

When the two teams finally do play, it’ll be No. 6-seeded Penn State squaring off against No. 3-seeded Iowa in the Nittany Lions’ first conference tournament game since 2012.
