“It was wonderful to be back in 2021. We were just happy to be playing. But the incredible story book ending and journey that last years team took us on, has set the table for 2022. I don’t think anyone wanted the season to end last year. We look to carry that momentum into this year,” said Mustangs President Ky Turner. “It’s like attending a family reunion once those gates open up and you can smell the hot dogs cooking on the grill, the voice of Greg Kastner over the loudspeakers, and Coach Coy leading his team out on the field. We also have some fun surprises we’ll unveil over this spring and summer, to continue to enhance each visit to a Mustangs game at Phil Welch Stadium.”
