SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - With winter weather-like conditions expected to return to Springfield, the Missouri State Bears' series opener against Wichita State has been postponed. Originally scheduled for a 6:35 p.m. first pitch Friday (May 3) at Hammons Field, the Missouri Valley Conference series opener featuring two of the league's top three clubs will now take place Saturday (May 4) at 12:30 p.m.
