For immediate release -

The Missoula Osprey and Great Falls Voyagers game originally scheduled for Friday Night at Ogren Park Allegiance Field has been cancelled due to unsafe field conditions. Saturday Night's game is expected to be played as originally scheduled with a 7:05pm first pitch. Tonight's game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday with Game 1 beginning at 5:00pm. Anyone holding a ticket for tonight's game may exchange it for equal or lesser value to ANY of the remaining 10 home games this season.

"We are very disappointed we couldn't get the field playable in time for tonight," explained Osprey Vice President Matt Ellis. "The amount of time and effort put on this field to make it playable, only to come up short at the end, hurts. I couldn't be more proud of or expect any more from my grounds team, but centerfield is just too soft to play on. Based on the daily improvement we have had, we are very confident that tomorrow's game will be played."

This homestand will resume tomorrow with some great promotions in the docket:
