After having most of its spring season cancelled due to weather and other circumstances, the CSU baseball team is ready for some spring fever. The team will play two games against the University of Northern Colorado on Saturday at CSU. The first game is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.
The team is coming off two loses to Trinidad State Junior College; however, the Rams remain 4-0 in the league.
“The game is pretty big,” said team captain Paul Olmstead. “We can set a precedent for the season and the rest of the league this weekend. They (UNC) have been our best competition so it should be a good series.”
