The Chadron State College softball home-opening doubleheaders, originally scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday, will be played instead on Friday and Saturday, in an attempt to avoid the coldest temperatures of the weekend and meet the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference criteria for softball games. CSC hosts the University of Colorado Colorado Springs for a pair of games beginning at noon on Friday, and another starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, as conditions permit.
The league requires a “Feels Like” temperature of 25 degrees or greater in order to commence its games.
Out of an abundance of caution for student-athlete safety, the gates at CSC Softball Field will be locked during the games, however, spectators may still bring personal seating and view the games from the perimeter of the park. Chadron State will make efforts to accommodate spectators down the left field line of the ballpark. The bleachers behind home plate will remain off-limits, as well as the ballpark restroom facilities.
No admission will be charged, and no concessions will be available. Portable restrooms will also be provided.
Vehicles will be prohibited on the grassy areas near the outfield, due to the melting snow and grounds conditions. Visitors should park in the softball field parking lot on the east side of the ballpark.
