The four local university or college baseball teams are in full swing with early games being played on the road in southern locales.  As the weather warms here the teams will return home.  With that said, if you are chomping at the bit to watch some college baseball, here are the home opening dates for Quincy University, Hannibal-LaGrange University, Culver-Stockton College and John Wood Community College. Quincy University will play their home opener on March 8 when the Hawks host Lincoln University in a double-header starting at 1:00 p.m.

Hannibal-LaGrange University holds their Trojan home opener on March 8 with a twin-bill against Central Methodist starting at 2:00 p.m.

Culver-Stockton College will play a Wildcat double-header with Mid-American Nazarene on March 19 beginning at 1:00 p.m.

The home opener for the Trailblazers of John Wood Community College will be held on March 19 with the first of two game slated for a 1:00 p.m. start time.

There is no better way to relax and enjoy a spring afternoon than going to watch a baseball game. Thank you Abner Doubleday!
