Mustangs Announce 2018 Schedule Celebrating 10th Anniversary Season
ST. JOSEPH, MO.- The Mustangs have finalized the 2018 schedule, marking ten years in St. Joseph.
The 5 time and defending MINK League Champion Mustangs are set to kick off their 10th season on Wednesday, May 30th against the Midwest A’s. Last season’s inaugural game set an Opening Day record for attendance with 4,889 fans and a 9-1 win over the A’s.
“We’re excited to celebrate ten wonderful years in St. Joe, with more to come,” Mustangs General Manager Ky Turner said. “Opening Day has almost become a holiday in St. Joe, and we’re planning some fun events for May 30th. We love our community here. We’re excited to open the gates here at the ballpark for our Mustangs family.”
The Mustangs finished last season 9th nationally in attendance, as Phil Welch Stadium hosted an average of 2,257 fans per game.
Notable games this season include July 3rd against Team USA Military Baseball and July 4th against MINK North opponent the Sedalia Bombers. The final two weeks of the season will feature interconference battles as the Mustangs host Clarinda, Chillicothe, and Sedalia to finish the 2018 regular season home schedule.The remainder of the schedule sees the Mustangs home for most weekends in 2018.
“We’re bringing some new surprises to Phil Welch,” Turner said, “but we are also returning some of our fan favorites. One fan favorite we’re bringing back is Team USA Military Baseball on July 3rd. That game will feature a special ceremony honoring our local military members, but we’re also going to host the American Fallen Soldiers Project to honor a family that day.”
The Mustangs will release a full promotional schedule for 2018 at a later date. Manager Johnny Coy will look to lead the Mustangs in his first season to a 6th MINK League Championship in the past 8 seasons.
