          10:30 a.m. - Extended infield/outfield drill
          11:30 a.m. - Players split into teams for a multi-inning scrimmage 

     (3) Players should come dressed in uniform - toilet facilities will be available 

     (4) An athletic trainer will be in attendance. 

     (5) Rain Date: Sunday, 6 June 2004 - same schedule times as listed above
