Mustangs team owner Ky Turner said, “St. Joseph is a remarkable place to play, watch, and experience summer collegiate baseball. There were nights that the only spot to sit was a grass hill, or the pregame line to enter the stadium reached lines we have never experienced. The electricity in the crowd was felt each night. To see the energy and life that is breathed into Phil Welch Stadium for about 30 nights this past summer is something that we are extremely proud of.” He went on to say, “We had guests visit from all over the world. New Zealand, Las Vegas, Finland, Jamaica, Florida, California, Texas, to name a few. We are honored and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful community and everyone who has a hand in the Mustangs experience. The stadium may be empty now, but we are full of ideas for 2024. We will continue to grow into the best baseball experience possible, and St. Joseph will long be known as a top destination for all summer collegiate baseball players to play.

The Mustangs will begin year 15 in 2024 at Phil Welch Stadium. For a complete list of the rankings, please visit
