Coach Chris Olean announced today that the annual fall Purple/White game-- originally scheduled for Sunday Oct. 6 -- will be pushed back and held Sun. Oct. 13 due to rain and wet fields. The day will begin at 10 a.m. off campus in Miesville, Minn. Located just south of Hastings southeast of the metro area, Miesville features a beautiful small-town ballpark, “The Jack.”
“At this point during our fall season we still are fielding four teams and will play three seven-inning games,” Olean said. “Although we are still not down to our final roster number, this is a chance to watch some great baseball in a fantastic venue. To cover some of our costs, we will be charging $3 admission at the gate. We will have a full concession stand available for the entire day.”
