Voyagers and Osprey will play 2 double-headers in Great Falls due to damage at Missoula stadium

MISSOULA — The Missoula Osprey have received some good news and will be able to wrap up their Pioneer League season at home.

The baseball club has announced that after 12 days of working on the field to fix field damage caused by a concert on Aug. 11, the Osprey officially received MLB approval to play the remaining home games on the schedule this season at Ogren Park Allegiance Field.

The Osprey are currently on the road in Great Falls through the weekend, but return home on Tuesday, Aug. 27 for a five game homestand through Saturday Aug. 31.

“I want to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks, our grounds crew, Nature’s Best Landscaping, and everyone who helped get this field back to a safe and playable condition,” said Matt Ellis, Osprey Vice President.

“We are so happy and excited to host games again for our community and fans. Our front office team has been working hard to make all five of our final games very special with new promotions, ticket offers, and great entertainment," Ellis added in a statement.

"Our players continue on the road to battle for a playoff spot and will return home to accomplish that goal for our fans. It will have been 24 days since they have played in front of our fans. We are looking forward to that day!”
