Illinois State has been chosen to host the 2019 Missouri Valley Conference baseball championship in the spring. Scheduled for May 21–25, the competition will take place at Duffy Bass Field. The winning team automatically advances to the NCAA Tournament.
“We are pleased to host the MVC Baseball Championship next May,” Athletics Director Larry Lyons said. “We have one of the best on-campus baseball facilities, and have continued to upgrade the facility since our last opportunity to host in 2013. Our staff is anxious to support the league’s baseball student-athletes and give them a first-class championship experience here in Normal.”
