Baseball Championship Will Now Be Held At ECU

The 2007 Conference USA Baseball Championship will be held at East Carolina University in Greenville.

It was originally scheduled for May 23-27 at Turchin Stadium in New Orleans.

A news release says it will be changing sites due to continuing renovations on the stadium since Hurricane Katrina. The facility will not be completed in time to host the eight-team, double-elimination tournament.

Since Tulane can not hold this year's tournament, ECU will serve as the host, at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville. ECU was supposed to host the 2008 championship, so ECU and Tulane will now switch years.
