BCSG 360 along with Black College Nines and the City of Montgomery Mayor’s Office hosted a virtual press conference this morning to formally announce the inaugural Black College World Series HBCU baseball events hosted by the Montgomery Biscuits home of Major League Baseball Double-A affiliate the Tampa Bay Rays. The event will be played at Riverwalk Stadium, 200 Coosa Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104.
The inaugural series will feature eight HBCU baseball teams, made up of four from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II and four from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). School baseball programs from these two athletic governing associations constitute the “small school” division.
The Black College World Series will take place on April 28, 2021 – May 1, 2021, at the ballpark and will allow HBCU baseball programs to write the next chapter of a much-needed showdown to determine a national champion of black college baseball.
