The unveiling of the new baseball field on the campus of Alton High School in Godfrey will have to wait.
After thunderstorms washed out the original home opener for the Redbirds on Wednesday against visiting Freeport, it was announced this morning that today's game vs. Belleville East has been moved to Belleville. The Southwestern Conference game will take place at 4:30 p.m. today at East.
It's the second SWC contest for Alton, which is 5-3 overall and 0-1 in league play. The Lancers are 6-2 and 0-1.
The home opener for the Redbirds will now be at 4:30 p.m. April 12 against conference rival Collinsville.
