East Carolina officials announced Wednesday afternoon that any Pirate fan who bought a ticket to the cancelled ECU-N.C. State game, originally scheduled for Tuesday night in Raleigh, can exchange it for a general admission single-game ticket to any of ECU’s three games this weekend against American Athletic Conference foe Houston.

Fans need to show proof of their ECU-N.C. State ticket (hard or electronic copy) and redeem it at the ticket office at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

A widespread storm that hit North Carolina early Tuesday and cancelled a top-10 college baseball showdown between East Carolina and N.C. State in Raleigh left Pirate fourth-year coach Cliff Godwin adamant about being disappointed in not playing the Wolfpack this season.

No. 2 N.C. State listed on its website that the game, which was scheduled to start at 6 p.m. and was sold out, was cancelled because of unsafe playing conditions at Doak Field from inclement weather during the afternoon.

Godwin, whose Pirates are ranked No. 7, said ECU wanted to play Wednesday. No make-up date is planned.

If the teams do not meet this year, it will mark the first time they haven’t played in a season since 2002.

“It’s just disappointing and I hate it for the kids on both teams to not be able to play this game,” Godwin said Tuesday afternoon. “It would have been a top-10 matchup and a rivalry game played in front of a sold-out crowd.”

North Carolina was scheduled to host Coastal Carolina on Tuesday and that game also was cancelled.

The Pirates (30-9) and State (31-8) are both set for key conference series this weekend.

ECU hosts Houston at Clark-LeClair Stadium on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. N.C. State hosts rival UNC on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

East Carolina went 4-0 last week, beginning with a win against Duke and then a sweep at American Athletic Conference last-place squad Memphis.

The cancellation leaves the Pirates without a midweek game for this week and next week. They play at Tulane next weekend.

ECU had a home game against College of Charleston on March 6 cancelled because of inclement weather.
