CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The University of Virginia baseball team’s newly rescheduled three-game series with the Penn State Nittany Lions has been cancelled due to inclement weather in the Charlottesville area along with insufficient playing conditions at Davenport Field at the UVa Baseball Stadium. The series is not expected to be made up.

A decision was this morning by Virginia officials who determined the playing surface of Davenport Field at the UVa Baseball Stadium was not suitable for competition and would not be able to be prepared appropriately to host the three-game series with Penn State. Davenport Field at the UVa Baseball Field has been covered with snow for the entire week and the playing surface has become saturated with moisture due to the melting snow and the heavy rain which has been falling for the past two days.

Virginia will return to action on Monday, February 24th when the Cavaliers travel to Lynchburg, Va. to face the Liberty Flames in a non-conference game at 2:30 PM at Worthington Stadium.
