COVID chaos: Tulane baseball trip to South Florida went from bad to worse

Post by OGSB »

Although the American Athletic Conference used the word “postponed,” Jewett said Tulane and South Florida would not make up their lost weekend unless they have series that are canceled by their respective opponents at the same time.

With the tournament starting a couple days after the last weekend I think most expected it to be canceled. I still think the repeat opponents should have all been scheduled the same weekend so make ups were possible.

btw, this is a bigger story. I’m surprised we stayed all weekend but it could have been because of flights not being available.
leaving the Green Wave with little to do while hanging around Tampa, Florida, for three days.

Then, the Sunday evening return flight was nixed because of heavy thunderstorms, forcing the entire traveling party to take buses back to New Orleans overnight. The arrival time was 6:30 a.m. Monday, making for one long, frustrating weekend.

According to TJ on the TJ Show, the team did do intra-squad scrimmaging while stuck in Tampa.
