The fifth-annual Parkview Sports Medicine High School Baseball series has been announced, and expanded to include a college game.

Twenty-two high school teams will have a chance to play a game at Parkview Field, recently named the No. 1 minor league baseball stadium in the country by Stadium Journey magazine.

For the first time, the series will also include a college game between Indiana Tech and Saint Francis. Parkview Sports Medicine underwrites the cost of the game and $4 of every $5 ticket goes to the participating schools. The other $1 goes to the Parkview Field maintenance and improvement fund. All games will air live on Comcast Network 81 and ESPN Radio 106.7-FM.

“We’re thrilled that the Parkview Sports Medicine High School Baseball Series has become an annual event,” said Tommy Schoegler, Director of Parkview Sports Medicine, in a released statement. “It’s exciting to see how this year’s schedule also adds a new element with the game between Saint Francis and Indiana Tech. At the end of the day, it’s all about giving these young student-athletes an opportunity they’ll remember for the rest of their lives, and the fact that these games wind up being fundraisers for the schools really just puts it over the top.”
