Baseball: Rebels, Tigers Tuesday contest postponed

By olemisssports.com

OXFORD, Miss. – Due to a chance of inclement weather in the Memphis area, Tuesday night’s baseball game between the Ole Miss Rebels (23-6) and Memphis Tigers (15-13) scheduled to be played at Autozone Park has been postponed.

Details for a makeup date for the game between the two schools are not yet known, but will be released as soon as possible.

The two teams have played the annual contest at Autozone Park 11 of the last 12 seasons. The only time in the Bianco era the two teams have not played the contest at Autozone Park prior to this season came in 2008 when a similar scenario with a chance of impending weather forced the postponement of the game.

The contest was later played on campus at the University of Memphis with the Rebels picking up a 10-1 victory.

Ole Miss will host No. 2 Vanderbilt this weekend in a three-game series at Swayze Field. Friday night’s series opener is set for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch between the Rebels and the Commodores.
