Marshall County’s baseball team has a Major League-style schedule this week, with six games in six days, and appropriately enough, that schedule will include an appearance in a Major League ball park.
The Marshals and Hillsboro, Mo., will play Wednesday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis in the second game of a double-header, following the opener between the Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds.
That will be the second of six games scheduled for the week. A visit to Carroll County on Monday was scheduled to launch the itinerary, which will include one home game.
At Busch Stadium, the Marshals will take on the Hillsboro Hawks following the Cards-Red game, which has a 12:45 p.m. starting time.
The Hawks have played at Busch in exhibition games the past seven seasons, while this will be the first visit for Marshall County. Hillsboro is in Jefferson County, which shares a northern border with St. Louis County.
On Thursday, the Marshals continue their road trip with a game at Clayton, a St. Louis high school.
The school is located near the University City area, which was hit by a tornado last week.
Marshall County coach Mike Johnson said he has not been information of any damages that would affect Thursday’s game at Shaw Park, near Clayton High School
Today and Sunday are open dates, but there are two games on Saturday’s slate. The Marshals will play Winfield, Mo., at 10:30 a.m. and Mater Dei of Evansville, Ind., at 1 p.m. in the Graves County Wood Bat tournament in Mayfield.
On Friday, the Marshals will host a game in the Wood Bat event at Marshals Field against Grayson County.
