Rain May Affect Baton Rouge Regional This Weekend
Unfortunately, it looks like rain may affect the Baton Rouge Regional this weekend, especially as the weekend moves along.
Weather.com is forecasting a 50% chance of rain on Friday, which turns into a 60% chance of rain on Saturday, and then a 100% chance of the wet stuff on Sunday.
Let’s hope that the rain doesn’t create much havoc, or even any at all, and a champion will be determined on Sunday.
The Baton Rouge, La. softball regional gets underway on Friday at Tiger Park, with four teams vying for a trip to the NCAA Super Regionals.
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns, making their 19th-consecutive regional appearance, will be part of a field that also includes the LSU Tigers, the top-seed in the regional, and the #13-overall seed, along with the McNeese St. Cowgirls and the Fairfield Stags in the double-elimination event.
Louisiana will take on McNeese St. in the first game of the regional, on Friday at 3 pm, followed by a match-up pitting LSU and Farifield at 5:30 pm.
