Blue Dragon Baseball Breaking News

Hutchinson CC Sports Information

The Hutchinson Community College baseball team announced that its 2018 season-opening three-game series will be moved up two days because of the elevated threat of winter weather this weekend.

Originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Walter Johnson Park in Coffeyville, the Blue Dragons and Coffeyville Red Ravens will now open the series at 3 p.m. on Thursday with a single game. The series concludes on Friday with a 1 p.m. doubleheader – a seven-inning game followed by a nine-inning game.

Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are expected to be in the 20s with a chance of precipitation. Thursday's high is expected to be near 60 and Friday temperatures are expected to be in the 40s before the weather starts getting colder later in the day.

The games will not be streamed live from Coffeyville, but there will be Twitter updates throughout the series.
