It's Cold in them there Hills !
One of the biggest challenges that Head Coaches and players find in the game of Baseball at the NAIA level is the fact that the weather in early February in highly unpredictable. The original dates for the opening weekend down in Johnson City, TN were Friday and Saturday. The weather forecast for Friday in the Tennessee Mountains was less than desirable for outdoor baseball (Low of 19) so the slate was moved to Saturday and Sunday. Well into my second decade of Golden Bear Baseball I have come to appreciate just how fluid the schedule becomes, especially early on when all Coaches are jonesing to get live action for their ballclubs. Saturday and Sunday both show ideal weather down in the Tri-Cities area which means that the goal will be to play all of the baseball that can be played!
