TACOMA, Wash. - Inclement Weather has put the kibosh on the Pacific Lutheran University baseball team's season opener this weekend in Oregon with the Northwest Conference Preseason Tournament in Newberg getting canceled.
The Lutes, ranked second in the NWC Preseason Coaches' Poll, were slated to play host George Fox University on Friday along with games against Whitworth University, Linfield College, and Whitman College over the next two days. All four games will tentatively be made up later in the season as a non-conference game on the final day of each NWC weekend series.
PLU will now open the 2017 season on Saturday, Feb. 10, facing Pomona-Pitzer Colleges in a three-game set in Claremont, California.
