Shocker baseball says play (snow) ball

Wichita State practiced outside on Thursday afternoon, thanks to a crew that cleared most of the four inches of snow off the Eck Stadium turf. Coaches Todd Butler, Brian Walker and Jon Coyne and director of operations Scott Gurss did the detail work on the infield with snow shovels.

First pitch is at 3 p.m. Friday, as scheduled.

WSU is still waiting on word from the NCAA regarding the Under Armour investigation.
