Rain delays opener of Oxford Regional
Oxford’s week-long rain pattern has continued this afternoon causing a delay of the Oxford Regional at Oxford-University Stadium.
The first game of the NCAA baseball regional was scheduled to begin at 3. Due to heavy rain, and the threat of more, the tarp has remained on the playing surface. No. 2 seed Washington and No. 3 Georgia Tech are currently waiting, in their respective dugouts, for the rain delay to be lifted.
Ole Miss, the No. 1 seed in the four-team regional, was scheduled to play No. 4 Jacksonville State at 7. It’s not know when that game would begin, but there is at least a 55-minute break in between the end of the first game and start of the second.
