Friday’s Opener Against Dartmouth Moved to 6 p.m.
LAWRENCE, Kan. – In fairness to Jayhawk fans across the nation, head coach Ritch Price and the Kansas baseball team pushed back the start time of Friday’s home-series opener against Dartmouth to 6 p.m. to accommodate those wishing to watch both the men’s basketball game and baseball series opener.
Originally slated for a 3 p.m. start, Price and Dartmouth’s head coach Bob Whalen agreed Wednesday to push back the start time three hours to 6 p.m. Not only will this new start time allow fans to catch the men’s basketball NCAA Tournament opener at 3:10 p.m. against Eastern Kentucky, but will allow the Kansas baseball players to continue acclimating to the Big 12 conference weekend series schedule, as Friday’s series openers are played at 6 p.m.
Fans can watch all three games against the Big Green live on ESPN3, accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, through ESPN on Xbox Live to Gold Members and on AppleTV. Steven Davis will handle the play-by-play with former Kansas baseball players Scott Heitshusen (Friday and Saturday) and Travis Blankenship (Sunday).
The games can also be heard live on Jayhawk Digital Passport through KUAthletics.com/Showcase with Sean Kellerman and Tom Hedrick calling the action.
