The forecast for rain on Saturday has forced an adjustment in the 2019 ODAC Baseball Tournament schedule for EMU at Randolph-Macon. Two games originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday will now both be played on Friday. The first game will begin at noon and the second one to follow.

If each team wins one game on Friday, a deciding third game would be played Saturday morning at 11:00am in Ashland, weather permitting.

There will be a $5 admission charge each day to attend the games. Kids 12 & under and students are free with valid ID.

The top four seeds host best-of-three series this weekend, with the four winning teams advancing to a double elimination bracket set for May 10-12 at Haley Toyota Field in Salem Memorial Stadium in Salem, Va.

The Royals (16-21-1/10-12 ODAC) will play in the ODAC Tournament for the first time since 2015, entering as the eighth seed traveling to top-seed Randolph-Macon (22-8-1/16-5-1 ODAC). The teams split their regular season doubleheader in Harrisonburg with the Royals winning game two on a walk-off in twelve innings.
