NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame softball team has rescheduled the start time for its first home game of the season Thursday at Melissa Cook Stadium.

The Irish and Green Bay are slated to take the field at 5 p.m. Thursday to avoid inclement weather conditions that are expected in the greater South Bend area. The game was originally scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Wednesday’s planned 4:30 p.m. contest at Western Michigan has been postponed due to an inclement weather forecast and unsafe field conditions. No makeup date has been announced.
