Missouri to face Missouri State at Busch

ST. LOUIS -- Busch Stadium will get a tune-up two days before the Cardinals' 2018 home opener when it hosts a game between the University of Missouri and Missouri State University. First pitch for the April 3 matchup between the two NCAA Division I baseball programs is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT.

This will mark the sixth time Mizzou has played at Busch Stadium, with their most recent appearance coming in 2014. Missouri State, which won an NCAA Regional title this past season, has never played at Busch Stadium before.

Tickets for the game are on sale at cardinals.com/collegebaseball. They can also be purchased at the Busch Stadium box office or by calling 314-345-9000. All tickets are $5 and will be general-admission seats for the lower level of the stadium.
