For Immediate Release
New Dates added to Mustangs 2019 Schedule
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) New dates have been added to the St. Joseph Mustangs 2019 schedule and promotional calendar as a result of rainouts on June 22nd and June 23rd.
The Mustangs will now host the Sedalia Bombers for a doubleheader on Friday, July 19th. Game one will begin at 5pm, with game two beginning with a small break after the conclusion of game one. Each game on the 19th is scheduled to be a 7 inning contest.
The Mustangs will also host the Chillicothe Mudcats on Sunday, July 21, to make up for the rainout on Sunday June 23rd. The game will begin at 6pm.
We were looking forward to play Chillicothe and Sedalia this past weekend until the weather had other ideas, said Mustangs General Manager Ky Turner. Both teams are two division rivals, and very important for the playoff race. We love playing in front of our hometown crowd. These games have been added at the end of the regular season, which means every pitch and at bat can determine whos in or out of the playoffs.
In addition to the updated games, the 2019 promotional calendar has shifted as well. Saturday, July 6th will feature a Pregame Fire vs Police Softball game as part of the Public Safety Night. Firefighters, Police, and EMTs all receive 2 free GA tickets for this evening, and will also feature a Mustangs Team Photo Giveaway. However, there will be additions to the July 6th promotional night. July 6th will also be Youth Sports Night- kids 18 and under wearing any youth jersey, for any sport, will also get in free. The 6th will also be the make up date for Mizzou Alumni Night- there will be Mizzou giveaways, courtesy of the Mizzou Buchanan County Alumni Association, as well as a scholarship drawing. Incoming or current Mizzou undergrad students can be entered into a drawing for a $750 scholarship. Two $750 scholarships will be given away. There will also be a postgame Mosaic Life Care Fireworks Spectacular.
The Mustangs and Hy-Vee also partnered together for a pop socket giveaway for the first 200 guests. Originally scheduled for June 23rd, the pop socket giveaway will now be scheduled for the Sunday, July 21st matchup versus the Chillicothe Mudcats.
Tickets for the Mustangs games that were rained out on June 22nd and June 23rd are good for any future Mustangs game, in 2019 or any future year, of equal or lesser value.
The MINK League All-Star Game is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26th. The Mustangs will return to action at Phil Welch on Thursday, June 27 with first pitch at 7pm. For advance tickets, please call 816.279.STJO or visit the Box Office at Phil Welch Stadium.
