GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Due to a Southeastern Conference policy prohibiting athletic teams from competing in non-league contests during exam periods, the University of Florida baseball program's mid-week series against Florida Gulf Coast University on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 29-30) at McKethan Stadium has been canceled.
“We are extremely disappointed,” said Head Coach Dave Tollett. “All of our players and our fans are very disappointed in the whole situation. Our team was excited for the chance to play Florida again, this is just disappointing for our program.”
The Eagles will play at Stetson for a three-game Atlantic Sun series beginning on Friday. The Eagles are up five in the loss column over second place Lipscomb with nine games to play.
