BATON ROUGE, La. – COVID-19 concerns will prohibit the UC Riverside baseball team from traveling to Baton Rouge this season, so LSU coach Paul Mainieri said Wednesday that the Tigers have made some adjustments to their 2021 schedule.

LSU will meet Youngstown State on Friday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. CT, and the Tigers will face both Youngstown State (2 p.m. CT) and Nicholls (6:30 p.m. CT) on Saturday, Feb. 27. LSU will now have on off day on Sunday, Feb. 28

In addition, the Tigers’ regularly-scheduled game with Nicholls has been moved from Wednesday, March 3 to Tuesday, March 2. First pitch for that matchup between the Tigers and the Colonels will be 6:30 p.m. CT.
