Today is the last time the Kansas Jayhawks have their home opener at Arrocha Ballpark. Seasons after this will take place at Rock Chalk Park, due to open later this year.
Kansas (15-7) has a doubleheader against South Dakota State (5-12) today, with first pitches scheduled for 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The South Dakota State Jackrabbits are coming off of a two-day invitational tournament in Evansville, Ind., with games against Evansville and Murray State. They lost both games.
Last week, coach Megan Smith scheduled the doubleheader against the Jackrabbits to offset two games earlier in the season that were cancelled due to weather.
Fans attending the games today will receive a 2014 team poster and a schedule magnet.
Following today’s contests, next up for Kansas is the Jayhawk Invitational, March 14-16. First pitch is Thursday 3:30 against Northern Illinois. The game was originally scheduled as Kansas’ home opener.
