Rain abruptly ends road trips for Texas’ baseball and softball teams

Posted April 30th, 2017


Due to rainy weather, Texas had baseball and softball games wiped off the schedule on Sunday.

The baseball team was set to close out a three-game series at Oklahoma State, while the softball squad was being hosted by Kansas. In an effort to beat this weekend’s weather forecast, the two teams scheduled double-headers on Friday and series finales on Saturday. On Saturday, though, those third games were delayed until Sunday.

Those weekend-ending games were cancelled a day later. They will not be rescheduled.


This weekend’s road trips weren’t a complete waste for the Longhorns. Texas (30-16) improved to 9-8 in Big 12 play on the baseball field with its 5-4 and 7-0 wins over Oklahoma State on Friday. The Longhorns (28-20; 6-8) also earned a softball sweep with its 10-0 and 2-0 wins in Lawrence.

Texas will next play baseball on Tuesday when it hosts UT-Arlington at UFCU-Disch Falk Field. The following day, Texas and A&M-Corpus Christi will play softball at McCombs Field.
