A year after rain washed away their home opener at Knights Stadium, Mother Nature struck again as the Charlotte Knights and Gwinnett Braves home opener was postponed Thursday.

The two teams will now have to wait one until Friday to get the 2013 season underway.

Thursday’s game will be made up with a doubleheader starting Saturday at 5 p.m.

Opening night is now set for Friday at 7:05 p.m.  You can hear all three games this weekend on News Talk 94.3 WRHI.
