    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern's Wednesday, March 27, doubleheader at Wisconsin scheduled to be broadcast in its entirety on BTN has been postponed due to poor playing conditions at the Badgers' Goodman Diamond.

    With both schools on spring break, NU offered to host the games at Sharon J. Drysdale Field in Evanston and facilitate the BTN broadcasts, but Wisconsin ultimately declined. Instead, the teams will work to shift non-conference games and attempt to reschedule the two-game series for later in April. The shuffled series will not be televised on its new date.

    The postponement means Northwestern is next in action in its 2013 home opener this Friday through Sunday, March 29-31, in a three-game series against Minnesota. First pitch on Friday is at 4 p.m. CT, Saturday's action begins at 1 p.m. CT and Sunday's game, which will be broadcast live on BTN, is a noon CT start.

    Northwestern softball is now a ticketed event in 2013 with all seating general admission. Tickets are $7 for adults, $4 for seniors age 65 and older, faculty/staff, children 17 and under, and students from other Universities with a valid ID. For special group and team rates, contact Joe Thuente (pronounced TENT-ee) in the NU marketing department at j-thuente@northwestern.edu or 847-467-6862.
