MIAA conference play begins this weekend. S&T with another tough matchup.

MIAA conference play is set to take off this coming weekend. Very little matchups inside the state of Missouri will take place, outside of Lindenwood hosting Missouri Southern.

#2 Central Missouri (7-2), Northwest Missouri State (8-2), and Southwest Baptist (6-1) all had very impressive non-conference starts to the year. As conference play gets underway this weekend the true grind begins.

Only a few weeks and even the mid-week matchups fall into a conference matchup for MIAA teams. Matching a mid-week conference opponent puts a lot of pressure often times on young arms new to the college baseball scene.

Missouri S&T started themselves off with one heck of an opening schedule for the season. First playing 3 against a top MIAA opponent in Emporia State and now traveling to play the 7th best team in the country in St. Edwards. S&T is set to play 4 games this weekend with St. Edwards in what could easily be a learning curve for the minors as they continue towards a trip to the World Series.

I will be in attendance this weekend at Lindenwood University. I’ll be taking in an all lions matchup. Game times are set for 3:00 on Friday, 1:00 on Saturday and Noon on Sunday.  The other Division 2 matchups are below:
