Northwest Missouri State University alumni and friends are invited to enjoy a fun-filled evening at the ballpark during its annual Northwest Night at the St. Joseph Mustangs, Saturday, June 5.

The baseball game featuring the St. Joseph Mustangs and the Nevada Griffons begins at 7 p.m. at Phil Welch Stadium, 2600 SW Parkway in St. Joseph, Missouri. Alumni and friends also are invited to a tailgate party from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Northwest Alumni Association tent outside the stadium. Fans also may enjoy fireworks at the stadium after the game.

“The Northwest Alumni Association is thrilled to be able to offer this event again this year,” Bob Machovsky, director of alumni relations and annual giving at the University, said. “We know for many this past year has been challenging, and this event provides an opportunity for Bearcats to come together and enjoy one of our country’s favorite pastimes.”

The St. Joseph Mustangs are members of the M.I.N.K. Baseball League, a summer collegiate baseball league that includes eight teams from Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas. For more information about the St. Joseph Mustangs, visit www.stjoemustangs.com.

Continuing a summer tradition that began in 2011, Northwest Night at the St. Joseph Mustangs is sponsored by Northwest Missouri State University and the Northwest Alumni Association. Additional details are provided below.
