Shockers practice at Riverfront Stadium ahead of inaugural game Saturday


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – It’s an exciting week for the Wichita State baseball team. Not only do they get to play four more games against conference rival Houston, on Saturday they will play the first-ever game at Riverfront Stadium.

“Anytime you’re part of a first, it’s special,” said Shockers head coach Eric Wedge. “Obviously it’s the first game playing downtown in the new ballpark, and playing a conference game to boot. It’s been a great reaction from the fans, and we’re really excited about it.”

The weekend series with Houston starts on Friday with a double header at 1 p.m. at Eck Stadium.

Saturday’s game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. at Riverfront Stadium. The series concludes on Sunday at 11 a.m. at Eck Stadium.
