The St. Catharine College Patriot Baseball squad opens their 2009 campaign Friday against Grace College (IN) at Edelen-Haydon Field. The 1:00 DH was previously scheduled to be a 2:00 start and a single 9 inning affair, but Patriot Head Coach Luther Bramblett decided to switch days due to the weather forcast for Saturday.
"We talked with Josh (head coach) at Grace and agreed to move the DH to Friday so we could get at least two games in over the weekend. The weather doesn't look great, but we'll wait to make a decision Saturday morning on wether to play or not."
The Patriots are coming off a 36-13 slate last year, as a juco program and are making their first appearance as a NAIA and Mid-South Conference member.
