Penn State Baseball’s Home Opener Canceled Due To Unplayable Field Conditions

Penn State baseball’s home opener, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, against Navy, has been canceled due to unplayable field conditions, the team announced Tuesday morning.

With the recent mix of snow showers and squalls passing through State College, the field is presumably not in good enough condition to play on Wednesday. The team’s game against Georgetown at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 17, will now serve as its home opener.

The Nittany Lions hold a 9-5 record to start the season, picking up two of three games against Brown this past weekend and winning three of four games in Cary, North Carolina earlier this month.

Penn State is led by head coach Rob Cooper, who has a winning record entering a home opener for the first time since 2019. That is in large part from stellar offensive play from juniors Jay Harry, Billy Gerlott, Kyle Hannon, senior Tayven Kelley, and recent transfer Thomas Bramley.

Penn State will play Georgetown in a three-game series this weekend, starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 17, followed by a single game versus Binghamton at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21, at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The games will be available to watch on BTN+.
