DRAGONS TO PLAY LABETTE IN DH AT PITTSBURG

Blue Dragon Baseball Breaking News

Hutchinson CC Sports Information

With the potential of two straight weeks off, the Hutchinson Community College baseball team picked up a pair of games for this Tuesday at a neutral site with a turf field.

The Blue Dragons will play Jayhawk East opponent Labette in a doubleheader at Pittsburg State University's Ortolani Field at Noon this Tuesday. The teams will play a pair of seven-inning games. It hasn't been determined what order they will follow, but the Blue Dragons and Cardinals each have one game as the home team.

Earlier Saturday, the Jayhawk Conference announced that the opening round of conference games set for next weekend – Hutchinson was to play Cloud County – to the final week of the season because of the continual winter weather that has pounded the state this year. Hutch will play Cloud County on May 2 and May 4 and the opening round of the Region VI Tournament is pushed back one week.

That would have left an entire two-week gap for the Blue Dragons, who last played on Friday at Rose State. The next scheduled games for Hutchinson will be the new Jayhawk West opener at Butler on March 7 in El Dorado.
