Baseball taking a raincheck

When it’s not raining, the Ichabods get to play baseball, but lately it’s been raining a lot. The first four games were cancelled right off the bat for snow.

“We’ve missed 12 games,” said coach Steve Anson. “It’s a disappointment to the seniors, and very discouraging for them. But as far as actual game-play, we got off to a good start. Hitting has been great, pitching has been good. It’s just about keeping the pressure on all the time.”

Overall, the Ichabods are 12-10, and 11-9 in the conference. 

Washburn was scheduled to play Rockhurst today in Kansas City, but that game was pushed back until tomorrow because of anticipated storms. The history with Rockhurst has been rocky to say the least with one win and one loss attributed to one double header against the Hawks. The scheduled match up in February was cancelled… because of weather.

Anson said he expects the team to pitch well and match the Jesuit offense.

“It should be a similar type of game,” he said.
