The Appalachian State University baseball team, making its first NCAA regional appearance in nearly 30 years, will have to wait at least one more day thanks to Mother Nature. Strong storms and rainy conditions at Davenport Field

in Charlottesville, Va., have stopped play between Virginia and Army. That game, which began at 11 a.m. was quickly interrupted by heavy rains three batters into the contest.
Complicating matters, the grounds crew had problems getting the tarp on the field. The end result, very wet conditions that have forced Army and Virginia to suspend their game indefinitely. And thanks to that lengthy delay, the ASU-Oklahoma game has been pushed back to Saturday at a time to be announced.
"They could play two games tomorrow, or they could play four games tomorrow," said the voice of the Mountaineers, David Jackson. "We'll see what happens."
ASU (39-16) is making its first NCAA regional appearance since 1986. The Mountaineers are 2-6 lifetime in regional play. Oklahoma (38-22) lost to Missouri in the Big 12 Conference championship game.  The Sooners are making their 11th appearance in regional play, and they've won a pair of national championships, the last one coming in 1994. OU won its first national title in 1951.
