College baseball is back at Kino Sports Complex through the month of March.
For the fourth straight year, Tucson Invitational Games is bringing dozens of college baseball teams to Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium and the seven baseball fields at Kino Sports Complex South.
Starting Sunday, March 2, 68 teams from across the country will train and compete through Saturday, March 29.
Team members, coaches, families and fans will be staying at local hotels and visiting local restaurants and attractions.
The teams and their schedules are available on the Tucson Invitational Games website.
“This time of the year it is about getting games and getting live looks and this venue provides this plus quality fields," Jeff Brabant, head baseball coach at Miles City Community College, said about last year’s games. “We will be returning for years to come.”
