SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Missouri State head softball coach Holly Hesse announced on Monday (Feb. 29) that her team's March 8 home opener against Central Arkansas has been moved to a 4:00 p.m. first pitch. Originally slated for a 3:00 p.m. start, the time change was made to accommodate a request by UCA for academic reasons.
Missouri State will play 17 games on 12 dates at Killian Stadium this season. The matchup with UCA will be MSU's fourth game this season against a 2015 NCAA Tournament opponent.
The Bears (7-6) travel to St. Louis this weekend for the Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament beginning on Friday at 1:00 p.m. versus host Saint Louis (4-6). MSU will also face UMKC on Friday and SEMO and Northern Illinois on Saturday.
Tickets for the home opener, and all Bears' home games this season, can be purchased at the Killian Stadium box office on the day of the game. Season tickets are available and can be purchased by calling the MSU ticket office at 417-836-8899.
