The Eastern Michigan university baseball team has moved its home opener to Wednesday, Eagles’ coach Jay Alexander announced.

Eastern will play the Spartans at Oestrike Stadium at 5 p.m.

EMU (5-9) was scheduled to play Michigan State University on its road trip to Jacksonville State in Jacksonville, Ala., but the game was canceled due to weather.

MSU (8-4) is coached by former Eastern coach Jake Boss. He and the Eagles won a Mid-American Conference Tournament title and NCAA regional bid in 2008.
