MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Due to inclement weather in the Morgantown area, Friday’s game between the West Virginia University baseball team and No. 18 Texas, presented by Humana, has been postponed.
The two teams will now meet in a doubleheader on Saturday, May 7. First pitch of Game 1 at Wagener Field at Monongalia County Ballpark is set for 2 p.m. ET, with Game 2 beginning approximately 30-45 minutes after the conclusion of the opener.
Reserved seating is sold out for Saturday and Sunday’s contests. Fans with tickets to Friday’s originally-scheduled game against the Longhorns can exchange for standing-room only tickets for either Saturday or Sunday at the ballpark box office, or – based on availability – can exchange for reserved seats for the Pitt game on Tuesday, May 10, or during the Kansas State series (May 19-21) by calling 1-800-WVU-GAME, visiting the Mountaineer Ticket Office inside the WVU Coliseum next week or on game day at the ballpark’s box office.
Of note, Saturday’s tickets are now good for both games of the doubleheader. Additionally, all three games will continue to air on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
