Arkansas Travelers season opener rained out, set for Friday doubleheader

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Texas League baseball will have to wait a day to get underway in central Arkansas.

The Arkansas Travelers were to host the Frisco RoughRiders Thursday night, but the game was called off because of rain.

The teams will open their three-game series with a Friday doubleheader. The first pitch is scheduled for 6: 10 p.m.

On Sunday, Midland comes to town, also for a three-game series.

The Travs are on the road April 11-16 and return to Dickey-Stephens on April 18 to open a series with Springfield.
