Carolina-Jacksonville Postponed

August 31, 2006 - Southern League (SL1) - Carolina Mudcats News Release

Zebulon, NC --- Thursday night's series opener between the Carolina Mudcats and Jacksonville Suns has been postponed due to the approach of Tropical Storm Ernesto.

The game will be made up as part of a Saturday doubleheader at 5:00 PM ET, with gates opening up at 4:00. Friday's game time of 7:15 remains in tact at Five County Stadium.

Ernesto, approaching landfall from the Atlantic Ocean near the North Carolina and South Carolina state line, is expected to dump between 2-6 inches of rain as it clears through the Triangle region sometime late Friday morning. Winds are expected to gust near 40mph later Thursday night.

Carolina and the Suns wrap up the regular season with 2:00 PM ET contests Sunday and Monday afternoon. For tickets, call (919) 269-2287 or contact the Mudcats official website
