In Hawaii, UO baseball team safe

UO baseball

EUGENE, Ore. – Six games into a series against the University of Hawaii's baseball team, the University of Oregon's baseball players are safe after tsunami sirens marred Hawaii's morning silence.

"The squad has left the team hotel, the Marriott Courtyard Waikiki Beach," said Joe Waltasti of University of Oregon in a press release Saturday. He said players have "moved inland onto the University of Hawaii campus."

No official evacuation was ordered at the time the team left their hotel Saturday morning. Waltasti said the evacuation was done "for precautionary measures only."

Meanwhile, their game with University of Hawaii - planned for Saturday evening - has been postponed until Sunday. That means a double-header starting Sunday afternoon, "time and weather permitting," Waltasti reports.

UH has won the past two games in this Hawaii stretch for UO. Both teams have an even three wins and three losses heading into Sunday afternoon.
