Second Annual “Clash At Comerica" Tomorrow Night

DETROIT – The Central Michigan University baseball program will host the second annual “Clash at Comerica” at Comerica Park tomorrow night versus Michigan State University.

The Chippewas and Spartans played the first-ever collegiate baseball game at Comerica Park last season on April 20, with the Green and White claiming a historic 3-1 victory in just one hour and 53 minutes.

The second annual “Clash at Comerica” will take place tomorrow with the first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on The Big Ten Network, and is the first-ever collegiate baseball game to be televised from Comerica Park.

“It was a goal of ours to make the “Clash at Comerica” continue as an annual event,” Central Michigan head baseball coach Steven Jaksa said. “The Tigers have been very instrumental in making this happen for a second year. This game will continue to add to the tradition of Central Michigan and Michigan State baseball. Michigan State head coach Jake Boss and I, have committed to doing things that will enhance baseball in the Midwest and for the second time fans will be able to visit a great venue in Comerica Park, and see a great baseball game.”

The two teams have met 100 times dating back to 1911, with CMU holding a 62-48 advantage over MSU. The Chippewas are the two-time defending Mid-American Conference West Division champions while the Spartans are coming off a 36-21 season and a Big Ten title themselves.
