Missouri State and Drury University’s baseball teams will square off on Saturday, September 21, but the real winner won’t be anywhere on the field during the game.
The game at U.S. Baseball Park will be a benefit for CoxHealth’s ALS Clinic. The clinic provides care and support for local ALS patients and coordinates all treatment programs.
All proceeds from the game benefit the clinic.
The game is held in memory of former Missouri State shortstop Howard Bell, who died from ALS in 2013.
A silent auction, autographs, and a chance to watch batting practice for each team will take place starting at 4 p.m. with the game’s first pitch scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Tickets are $5 each or $10 for a package that includes a burge, chips, and soft drink in a “Battle for Bell” cup. Get tickets through the CoxHealth Foundation, U.S. Baseball Park, or Drury University’s O’Reilly Family Event Center.
