UHV Sports Schedule Changes

Posted: Updated:

Two UHV sports teams make schedule changes while awaiting stormy weather. 

Due to the weather forecast and possible heavy rain late Tuesday, the University of Houston-Victoria softball team has revamped its schedule and will host Texas College in a three-game Red River Athletic Conference series on Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex.

The two teams were originally scheduled for a four-game series on Tuesday and Wednesday with the final game scheduled as a non-conference game. I talked with two Jaguars about going 2-1 in their latest Red River series at Langston last weekend. UHV baseball will now host Texas College at Riverside Stadium Friday and Saturday. Game times should be decided by Tuesday.

The New York Yankees are on track to open the season this week with baseball's seventh-highest payroll, their lowest ranking since 1992, according to projections by The Associated Press.
    
The Boston Red Sox will top the major leagues at about $223 million, ending the Los Angeles Dodgers' four-year run as the top spender. San Francisco will be second at around $203 million, with the Chicago Cubs set to be third at about $183 million.
    
The Dodgers and Washington Nationals will each be at approximately $180 million, with the Los Angeles Angels at about $170 million. The Yankees will be at around $167 million - their lowest payroll since 2003.
    
New York has not been ranked as low as seventh since 1992, in the final season of owner George Steinbrenner's 2½-year suspension.Bartolo Colon has signed another minor league contract with the Texas Rangers, who anticipate that the 44-year-old right-hander will start the fifth game of the season.
    
While there are no promises for Colon after the April 2 game at Oakland, he re-signed with the team Monday.
    
Colon went to spring training with a minor league contract and had a 3.00 ERA over 18 innings in his five starts. The Rangers said when they cut him Saturday that they were working to renegotiate a new deal. The initial deal would have paid him $1.75 million if he had been added to the 40-man roster.
    
Texas also signed infielder Trevor Plouffe to another minor league deal. Both Plouffe and Colon were assigned to Triple-A Round Rock's roster.
