SPOKANE, Wash. – The Northwest Conference baseball series between Whitworth University and Whitman College scheduled for this weekend is cancelled.
With snow on the ground and freezing temperatures in Spokane, Whitworth's Merkel Field is unplayable. Administrators and coaches explored alternate locations, but potential fields were either already in use, or not ready for game play.
The Pirates and Blues will make up the series over the course of two weeks in March. The teams will play a doubleheader in Spokane on March 20th beginning at noon. Then they will play a single game in Walla Walla on March 27th at 3:00 pm. Whitworth will still play as the home team in that series finale.
