Growing up around sporting events, players dream of playing on the biggest of stages imaginable.  The STLCC baseball team once again has the opportunity to play where few college teams ever play.  The Archers will be facing Lewis and Clark Community College at Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2013.

Lewis and Clark Community College is from Godfrey, Ill. and this will be the fourth consecutive year the Trailblazers and Archers have played each other at Busch Stadium.  The Archers took the first three games that were against Lewis and Clark.

The Archers have an eight-year history of playing at Busch Stadium.  The Archers have a 4-5 all time record at Busch and a 3-5 record at the new Busch Stadium.  Past games were played against STLCC-Forest Park and Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods.

In 2005 the Archers beat Forest Park but lost the next four games against them.  The Archers lost their next game against Maple Woods but have since won the last three games against Lewis and Clark.

The game at on Sept. 8 will be played after the St. Louis Cardinals game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

According to Archers baseball coach Tony Dattoli, games in the past have been a highlight for the players and coaches of the Archers.

“Anytime you get an opportunity to coach in a major league ballpark it’s great,” Dattoli said in the Sept. 1, 2011 issue of the Montage. “I’ll be just as giddy as they will when we first start. I think I’ll be a little more nervous than they will be because I don’t ever want to be beat in that game.”
