College baseball gearing for 'Classic at The K'


MILWAUKEE -- Kauffman Stadium will go college on April 22 with a Missouri-Kansas border clash.

The University of Missouri Tigers will take on the Wichita State Shockers from Kansas at 7 p.m. CT on Tuesday, April 22, in a game that will benefit the National College Baseball Hall of Fame in Lubbock, Texas.

Farmland Foods will sponsor the event, "The National College Baseball Hall of Fame Classic at The K."

"We are so honored that David and Dan Glass and the Royals organization have chosen to host this game," said Hall of Fame executive vice president of development Jana Howser, daughter of late Royals Hall of Fame manager Dick Howser. "We look forward to a wonderful night of college baseball."

The teams have played 10 times with Wichita State winning six games. The Shockers won, 3-0, in the last meeting in 2004.
