UCSB Moves Baseball Opener to Loyola Marymount

Due to forecasted storms, UC Santa Barbara's baseball season-opening series has been moved to Loyola Marymount University and will now be played on a Thursday-Saturday-Sunday schedule, head coach Andrew Checketts announced Wednesday. 

UCSB asked for and received a special exemption from the NCAA to begin the season a day early.

The Gauchos' new season-opening game will be played at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16 at Page Stadium on the campus of LMU. After a scheduled off-day on Friday, the series is scheduled to resume with a 6 p.m. contest on Saturday evening and a 1 p.m. finale on Sunday afternoon at LMU. 

With the changes, UCSB's 2017 home opener will now be played on Friday, Feb. 24 against Tulane, the first of a three-game series at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
