Staff Writer

The Owens Express baseball team, led by head coach John Parisho, is returning to Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo for a doubleheader in preparation for the postseason. The Express will take on the Marian University’s Ancilla College Chargers on Tuesday, April 18 beginning at 5 p.m.
“The team is excited to return to Fifth Third Field and play in such a great environment,” said Parisho. “They are counting down the days to take the field and showcase their talents to their friends, family and the community.”
Many baseball players dream of playing in a big stadium under the lights, and the Express are ready to do that again at Fifth Third Field, their home away from home, for the third consecutive season.
The Express played the Bryant & Stratton Bobcats last year and won both games 5-0 and 8-7 respectively. “Last year’s games were a big success for the Express and we are very excited to be hosting the team again,” said Troy Hammersmith, manager of special events for the Toledo Mud Hens.
Before first pitch, rising country music star Eric Burgett will sing the National Anthem.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids ages 6-17, seniors and members of the military. Owens Community College and Marion University’s Ancilla College will be able to unlock free tickets using the promo code provided on their respective campuses. Students may present their student ID at the box office as well.
