Weather throws Gophers baseball another curveball

Samuel Gordon

Perhaps lost in the breath of fresh air that is the new Siebert Field was the fact that Minnesota's weather, even in April, can be treacherous.

And that treacherous weather cost the Gophers baseball team its first Big Ten series since 2007.

The roughly eight inches of snow that Mother Nature dumped onto the Twin Cities on Thursday night made the field unplayable. The 40-degree weather made being outside uncomfortable.

The combination of those two factors forced the cancellation of Minnesota's three-game set against Michigan State.

Weather has cost the Gophers six games this season and has delayed a few more.

Minnesota is scheduled to play again on Wednesday against North Dakota State at Siebert Field.
