COLUMBIA — Missouri's 1954 baseball team, the school's first national championship-winning squad, is scheduled to be honored at Taylor Stadium this season. The event headlines the Missouri baseball team's home promotional schedule for the 2014 season.
The ceremony honoring the team is scheduled to take place May 3 as a part of Throwback Day. The 1954 team is one of only two Missouri teams to win a NCAA national championship — men's indoor track and field won in 1965. The 2014 season marks the 50th anniversary of the baseball team's accomplishment.
Other events on the promotional schedule include the Week Day Work Perk, which will be recognized for every mid-week game during this season. Admission will be free for fans that present business cards and for students up to the sixth grade that present an "A" on a homework assignment or exam. The Tigers' home opener Feb. 28 against Illinois-Chicago will be free for all fans.
