(WCIA) — Illinois baseball’s home opener set for Friday has been rescheduled. The Illini will now face SIU in a double-header on Saturday, March 16th.
“I’m pretty excited, we’ve been on the road for a couple weeks, four weeks now, and it’s exciting to get out and play in front of our home fans at Illinois Field so we’re excited about that,” says outfielder Jack Yalowitz.
“We got to defend home a little bit, we got to take care of ourselves. It’s easy on the road, we’re all in a hotel where it’s just baseball,” says assistant coach Drew Dickinson. “We got to be able to come home, and take care of buisness here, and get ready and rolling for the Big Ten.”
