Hornets baseball qualifies for SWAC tournament

The Alabama State baseball team has clinched the fourth seed in the Eastern Division and will play next week in the SWAC Tournament in Shreveport, La.

The Hornets qualified after Jackson State won two of three games against Alabama A&M in a makeup series played Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon.  The series, originally scheduled for late April, had been postponed after tornadoes hit the Huntsville, Ala. area.

Alabama State will face the #1 Western Division seed Southern University on Wednesday, May 18 at 6 p.m. at Fairgrounds Field.

The Hornets will finish up its regular season play against Auburn, Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at Auburn.
