Missouri Southern to serve as host to 2017 MIAA Baseball Tournament


The MIAA has announced that Warren Turner Field on the campus of Missouri Southern State University has been selected as the site for the 2017 MIAA baseball tournament. The tournament will be held May 11-14, 2017. The winner of the 8-team tournament receives an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

"The response and interest from our member schools to host this event was impressive," stated commissioner Dr. Bob Boerigter. "Missouri Southern is poised to be terrific hosts in their superb state-of the art baseball facility and I am sure our student-athletes and fans will have a great experience there."

"We are very excited for the chance to host the 2017 MIAA Baseball Tournament," commented Missouri Southern Athletic Director Jared Bruggeman. "I want to thank the MIAA and commissioner Bob Boerigter for this tremendous opportunity. Warren Turner Field is a beautiful facility that has already been host to some great MIAA games, many high school and youth games, as well as professional baseball. We enjoy hosting events in all sports and especially enjoy giving the student-athletes the MIAA Championship experience they deserve. So it is wonderful to be designated as the home site for the many outstanding baseball players and teams of the MIAA!"
