DECATUR -- The Big Blue home baseball schedule will have to wait a day, due to inclement weather across the state of Illinois.
Millikin's home opener against Blackburn, originally scheduled for 4pm Wednesday, has been moved to 6:30pm Thursday at Sunnyside Park in Decatur.
The Big Blue return home after a 9-3 record on their season-opening road trip, including a 6-2 mark at the Gene Cusic Classic in Fort Meyers, Florida.
That's thanks, in part, to the strong start at the plate for first baseman Keith Askins. The Meridian grad is hitting .545 with a 1.357 OPS, including a homerun and 6 RBI through nine games this season.
