(Park Hills) The Mineral Area College baseball team is hoping to continue in the postseason where it left off in the regular season. MAC went 29-11, won the MCCAC conference championship and finished 2nd in Region 16. Coach Blake Jones is proud of what his team has accomplished so far…

The MAC offense has been explosive all year and currently stands 12th in the country in average 351, 18th in slugging (.589) and 8th in on base percentage (.474). Coach Blake Jones says they don’t have many holes…

The Cardinals are led by the little brother of MAC’s only baseball All-American in school history. Connor Hicks has taken over where Liam Hicks left off…

Connor Hicks is 4th in the country slugging .920, 11th in homers with 16 and 17th in average at .440.

Coach Jones says if they can get the pitching to give some support they could have a fun postseason…

The Cardinals host 11-22 Metro in a best of three sub regional Friday and Saturday at Hal Laughary Field in Park Hills.
If the Cardinals beat Metro, they would advance to the Region 16 semis next Thursday (May 13th) in Joplin.
