(Greensboro, NC) The Greensboro Grasshoppers announced tonight's scheduled game against the Hagerstown Suns has been postponed due to adverse field conditions at First National Bank Field. The two teams will meet tomorrow at Burlington Athletic Field at 7:00 PM. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Thursday June 8 at a site to be determined by Wednesday afternoon.

Due to almost 5" of rain prior to the May 25-31 home stand and the field being tarped for almost 72 hours, the infield grass at First National Bank Field became diseased and was re-sodded May 31. "Unfortunately, the newly sodded infield has not recovered sufficiently and has caused this decision to be made. We hope to be able to play our Thursday night game here and will make that decision by Wednesday afternoon," said Grasshoppers President and General Manager Donald Moore.

Fans can use their Tuesday night or Wednesday night ticket at Burlington Athletic Field for tomorrow's regularly scheduled game or redeem it for any future 2017 Hoppers home game, based on availability.
