Meridian CC baseball team announces schedule changes

MERIDIAN — The Meridian Community College baseball team announced Tuesday afternoon that it has made several changes to its schedule to conclude the 2014 regular season.

MCC is scheduled to return to action this weekend in a critical Miss-Lou Conference series on the road at Baton Rouge Community College. The series is set to begin Friday with a doubleheader at 1 p.m. and conclude on Saturday with a single nine-inning game at 1 p.m. MCC is currently 3-5 in the Miss-Lou Conference standings, while Baton Rouge is 3-3 heading into the weekend series.

The first change to the schedule that was announced Tuesday afternoon from the Eagles was a change in an original road doubleheader against Wallace-Hanceville Community College for April 26. The Eagles will still travel to Wallace-Hanceville on April 26, but the Eagles will be playing two different opponents on that Saturday afternoon.  

MCC will play Central Alabama Community College and Wallace-Hanceville on April 26 on the campus of Wallace-Hanceville beginning at 2 p.m. MCC played Wallace-Hanceville earlier this season at Scaggs Field and swept the Lions in a doubleheader. Central Alabama won the 2013 NJCAA Division I National Championship and should be a solid test for the Eagles late in the season.  

MCC also announced that it has added a single nine-inning game against East Central Community College at Scaggs Field on April 28 beginning at 6 p.m. The Warriors are the defending 2013 MACJC State Champions, and East Central defeated MCC twice during the regular season a year ago in Decatur.

MCC is still scheduled to play Shelton State Community College in a single nine-inning game at Scaggs Field on April 29 at 6 p.m., and the Eagles will travel to LSU-Eunice the weekend of May 2-4 for a three-game series against the Bengals. LSU-Eunice is currently ranked second in the nation according to the latest NJCAA Division II Baseball Poll.

The Eagles will close out the 2014 regular season on May 6 with a nine-inning game against Alabama Southern Community College beginning at 6 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but the game was moved due to wet. MCC will compete in the 2014 Miss-Lou Conference Tournament May 9-11 with the site still to be determined.
