Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s baseball team will play the opening weekend of its Ohio Valley Conference slate at Raymond C. Hand Park, Saturday-Monday, after poor field conditions at Eastern Illinois’ Coaches Stadium forced the series to be relocated.
The three-game set also will be moved back one day to accommodate Eastern Illinois’ travel schedule.
