Texas A&M baseball vs. Alabama Crimson Tide postponed; Aggies and Tide will play doubleheader tomorrow

Texas A&M baseball faces a key contest this weekend against the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide are coming off of a series victory against the previous #1 in the nation, the Arkansas Razorbacks, including a win in extra innings. Importantly, this series took place in Tuscaloosa, where the Tide will play host to the Aggies this weekend.

First pitch for the opening game was scheduled for 6 PM CT today; however, due to persistent, inclement weather, the game has now been postponed. The Aggies and Tide both announced today that the game will be made up tomorrow as part of a doubleheader, starting at 11 AM CT.

This will be the first doubleheader of the year for the Aggies.

Prager will presumably remain the starter for game one, despite the delay. The tarp came out well before the scheduled first pitch, so I'm not even sure the teams had really gotten warmed up in earnest yet.

This means that we'll go to sleep tonight without a great handle on how the series might go (except for projections based on the relative strength of each team), and we'll go to bed tomorrow night with the series possibly already decided. The Aggies have an opportunity here to jump all over the Tide and set the tone early; baseball is a funny game, but it can be hard to shake off a dominant performance when you come back out and play the same team only a couple of hours later.
