SIAC Sports Information


For the second time in three years, the Miles College baseball team will battle the Birmingham Barons in an exhibition game on Apr. 5 at Regions Field in downtown Birmingham. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. General admission tickets for the game will be sold for $7 through the Miles College business office prior to the contest. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

The two teams played each other in an exhibition contest back in 2014, when the Barons defeated the Golden Bears 5-0 in seven innings. Still, Miles head coach is excitied for the opportunity for his ball club.

“Playing this game this time of year gives our kids an opportunity to relax and have fun because the game does not affect our record or conference standings,” Hatcher said. “It also benefits us to see good pitching heading into the post season.”

There will also be a reception at the Negro Southern League Museum prior to the contest. The reception will feature free refreshments and begins at 4 p.m. For more information on tickets to the event, please call 205.929.1615.
