Weather alters Kansas’ series with Baylor
LAWRENCE, Kan. – With rain showers forecasted for most of the evening in the Lawrence area, Kansas softball has moved its Big 12 Conference opener against Baylor to Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday, KU will host its annual ‘Jayhawks for a Cure’ game with Rock Chalk Park turning orange for kidney cancer awareness. There will be a silent auction on the concourse prior to first pitch with all proceeds going to raise awareness for kidney cancer.
