Baseball Changes Game Times vs. Southern Illinois and Saint Louis
April 6, 2011
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. – Head coach Mark Hogan has announced two game time changes for next week. Tuesday’s game at Southern Illinois has been changed from 3 pm to 1 pm, while Wednesday’s game at Saint Louis has been moved from 3 pm to 6 pm.
Tuesday’s game time change is for a very special reason for both teams. Former Saluki head coach Dan Callahan will be inducted posthumously into the Springfield Sports Hall of Fame in Springfield, Ill. Coach ‘Cal’ tragically passed away on November 15 after a courageous battle with cancer. The induction ceremony will begin on Tuesday evening, causing the change in game time.
“This is a really big thing for us,” said Salukis interim head coach Ken Henderson. “We want to be there for Cal and to support his family.”
The Redhawks and Salukis have faced off 27 times since Mark Hogan took over at the helm of the program.
“I really appreciate coach Hogan for understanding this situation,” said Henderson. “This really means a lot to all of us.”
