ECU home games moved to Missouri

The winter weather that hit Oklahoma Wednesday has forced a change to this weekend’s East Central University home baseball series With Drury.

The Tigers were set to play their first games at Ken Turner Field but will now be making a trip to Ozark, Missouri, to battle the Panthers at US Baseball Park.

The Panthers return seven starters from their line-up in addition to 10 pitchers that saw significant time on the mound last season from a team that finished 32-25, 21-12 in the GLVC, and advanced to the NCAA-II tournament for the second time in three years.
