BSB: NC State to host Canisius after CA trip cancelled

Posted February 13, 2014

Doak Field during the UNC vs. NC State baseball game on April 17th, 2011 at Doak Field in Raleigh, North Carolina.

NC State baseball will host Canisius for a three-game series beginning Saturday after the Wolfpack's season-opening trip to UC Santa Barbara was cancelled due to severe weather in the Raleigh area. 

The series will continue on Sunday and conclude on Monday. Game times are still to be determined, based on the evolving weather situation.

The Wolfpack takes on Baseball America's choice to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, a Canisius squad that won a school record 42 games and made waves in the triangle last year with hard-fought appearances in the Chapel Hill Regional.

The Golden Griffins possess two of Baseball America's Top 10 MAAC Prospects for 2014: first baseman Brett Siddall and righthander Devon Stewart.

The makeup scheduling news comes after NC State's coaching staff reported great progress in clearing snow on Thursday, building confidence that Doak Field will be game-ready by Saturday.

    It was such a strange sight to see the State baseball players shoveling snow to clear their field; something I don't associate with "the boys of summer".
