Friday Virginia-ECU Baseball Game Moved to 5 p.m. Start
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Friday baseball game between Virginia and East Carolina has been moved back to a 5 p.m. start from its original start time of 3 p.m. A forecast for rain through the morning on Friday prompted the switch, which will allow additional time to prepare the field for play.
Virginia will play host to ECU Friday through Sunday in a three-game series between unbeaten teams at Davenport Field. Because of events at John Paul Jones Arena on Friday and Saturday, there will be some parking limitations for baseball patrons on those days.
Friday, baseball parking will be available in the University Hall, Cage and McCue lots, the John Paul Jones Arena Garage and the Emmet-Ivy Garage for the 5 p.m. game. Parking will be limited because of university business-day needs. The JPJA surface lot will not be available because of an event at the arena that evening.
Saturday, the teams will play at 2 p.m. Gates open at noon. Baseball parking will be available at the Emmet-Ivy Garage all day and in the University Hall lots after 12:30 p.m. Prior to 12:30 p.m., parking in the University Hall lots will be restricted to those attending the men’s basketball game vs. Boston College (noon tip-off). Fans are encouraged to arrive early because large crowds are anticipated for both events.
Tickets remain on sale for all Virginia baseball games through the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office. Tickets may be ordered online at VirginiaSports.com, in person at the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office in Bryant Hall at Scott Stadium or by phone at (800) 542-8821. General Admission seating is available in the left- and right-field bleachers, the first baseline bleachers and on the grass hillside. A limited number of Reserved seats also are available in advance for this series.
