The crack of the bat; the roar of the crowd; the heat of a rivalry. It’s almost Alumni Night at Hammons Field and we’re inviting you to get in on the action. The Missouri State Bears are aiming for more NCAA Tournament success and looking to improve upon their Super Regional appearance in 2015. Junior third baseman Jake Burger was just named to the midseason player watch list for the Golden Spikes Award, which is given annually to college baseball’s best player. He is considered a possible first-round choice in June’s major league baseball draft. You’ll kick yourself if you miss him as a Bear. Luckily, you can see him play in Springfield in a crucial game against rival Mizzou. First pitch is 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25 at beautiful Hammons Field. The Bears lead the all-time series against the Tigers 28-25 and look to keep the winning edge.
