Get Your 'Baseball Eye' Back with Free College Ballgames
Webster University plays at the Gateway Grizzles Minor League Ballpark in March and April.
Before you head down to Busch Stadium to watch the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals in April, it is important to get your “baseball eye” back. Your “baseball eye” is having the ability to follow fly balls off the bat, watch a stolen base attempt while enjoying a beverage without missing the throw or tag.
Fans need to have spring training workouts. One of the best ways to do that is to attend some college baseball games in March. The Webster University Gorlok baseball team is the four-time defending St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Association Conference champs.
Junior outfielder Cody Stevenson led NCAA Division-III baseball with 47 stolen bases in 2011. Senior pitcher David Mueller from Webster Groves is back after going 6-3 in 2011 with a 3.66 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 77 innings.
All Webster games are played at GCS Ballpark, the home of the Gateway Grizzles. The ballpark is located at 2301 Grizzlie Bear Blvd. in Sauget, IL. Take Interstate 255 to the Mousette Lane exit and turn left. You can also take Interstate 44 east, cross the Poplar Street Bridge, then go south on Illinois Rt. 3 to Camp Jackson Road, and then turn left on the I-255 service road to the ballpark.
Admission for Webster University games is free. Seating is open and fans can enjoy a box seat behind the plate with no problems. The Grizzles provide concessions of soft drinks, coffee, beer, hot dogs, brats, nachos, pretzels and popcorn at prices far less than what you pay at Busch Stadium.
