GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Due to a Southeastern Conference policy prohibiting athletic teams from competing in non-league contests during exam periods, the University of Florida baseball program’s mid-week series against Florida Gulf Coast University on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 29-30) at McKethan Stadium has been canceled.
“This was an administrative oversight that was simply overlooked and we accept full responsibility for this situation,” Athletics Director Jeremy Foley said. “We are looking at several options in making up the missed games during the next two weeks and wanted to apologize to Florida Gulf Coast University and the fans of both schools.”
Coming off an important series win over fifth-ranked Georgia that improved them to second in the league standings, the Gators (27-16/12-9 SEC) will head to the Palmetto State on Thursday for a weekend series at No. 9 South Carolina
