CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Saturday Virginia-Wake Forest baseball game at Davenport Field has been moved to an 11 a.m. start time because of a forecast for inclement weather. The game originally was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.

ACC game-management protocol stresses that every effort should be made to complete all three games in a conference series. With a high probability for inclement weather Saturday, this change will give the teams the best opportunity to complete the series.

Fans with tickets for the Saturday game that cannot attend because of the new time may: (a) exchange their ticket in advance for a General Admission ticket to any other regular season game by calling the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office at (800) 542-8821 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm., or (b) bring their ticket stubs to the gate for General Admission seating at any remaining regular season home game, subject to seat availability at the time of arrival or (c) exchange their ticket for a General Admission ticket to a Virginia men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and / or volleyball games within the calendar year based on availability. This exchange can happen through the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office in advance or at the ticket window of that facility on game day.

Parking will be available in the University Hall and McCue Center lots as well as the Emmet-Ivy Garage. The University Hall and McCue Center lots must be vacated by 4:30 p.m. because of the Elton John concert at John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday night.

There will be a video webcast on WINA 1070-AM and 98.9-FM also will carry the game. Free hot chocolate and coffee will be available for all fans Saturday.
