GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Both East Carolina and Rhode Island have passed the COVID-19 testing. Now, if the weather will cooperate, we’ll have baseball Friday night.
ECU is scheduled to begin its baseball season on Friday, now at 7 p.m. instead of 4 p.m. due to the weather, at Lewis Field at Clark-LeClair Stadium. The main question now is whether the weather will cooperate. While it’s expected to get better for the weekend, Friday is still up in the air.
