GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina University officials announced Monday afternoon that the midweek baseball game between No. 23 ECU and Old Dominion, originally scheduled for Tuesday, Mar. 3, has been pushed back to Wednesday afternoon due to potential inclement weather and below freezing temperatures in the area. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.

ODU is 3-4 after rallying to beat St. Joseph's Friday, 11-10. The rest of the weekend was rained out. Junior thirdbaseman Jake McAloose leads the Monarchs in hitting at .385 which includes two homers and six RBI.
