Mustangs and Bisons Set to Play at Dickey-Stephens Park
The Central Baptist College Mustangs have announced details to host a Division II opponent at Dickey–Stephens Park. The CBC Mustangs and the Harding Bisons will take the field at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, April 24, 2017 at the home of the Class AA Arkansas Travelers. The event is being sponsored by First Security Bank.
The CBC Mustangs Coach Dr. Aaron Brister and the Bisons Coach Dr. Patrick McGaha have agreed to the neutral site and the event is intended to be held annually. CBC Coach Dr. Aaron Brister said, “It’s very exciting to play Harding on a big stage. We can’t wait to showcase our talent in that venue.”
Tickets for adults are $10 and tickets for children 12 and under are $7 (3 and under is free). Student tickets will be $5 for CBC and Harding students with a valid student ID. All seats are general admission. Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling 501-205-8910 or online at www.cbc.edu/dickey-stephens. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the Dickey-Stephens Park box office on the night of the game.
CBC coach Dr. Aaron Brister said, “We are very grateful to the Arkansas Travelers Baseball Club for the opportunity to play at their facility. Any time you can tell a recruit that you are going to play in a AA park, that’s exciting and great for recruiting. We hope the community will come out and support both programs as well.”
In 2016, the CBC baseball team broke win records and won the first American Midwest Conference championship. The Mustangs also played the St Louis Community College Archers in an exhibition game at Busch Stadium, the most notable venue ever for the College.
