Weather changes Tornado Baseball season opener

BRISTOL, Tenn. - The start of the 2011 King College baseball season has been pushed back a day to Sunday due to the threat of rain at Francis Marion (S.C.) University.

Sunday's doubleheader will start at noon.

The Tornado, under second-year head coach Mac McClarrinon, went 29-16 in 2010 winning the NCCAA Mid-East Region Championship and playing in the NCCAA Division I World Series.

Francis Marion posted a 40-14 record a season ago and hosted the NCAA Division II Southeast Region Tournament. The Patriots ended 2010 ranked No. 10 nationally after a second-place finish at the region tournament.
