The fall Lubbock Christian University baseball tradition continues, as the annual "Ducks & Skunks" baseball series at Hays Field is set to begin its best-of-three edition Friday, Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. at Hays Field.

The series dates back to the fall of 1970 when then-LCC (Lubbock Christian College) head coach Larry Hays devised the series to celebrate the end of fall practices, but the name Ducks & Skunks dates back to 1962, when LCC's first baseball team needed uniforms and the Post Cereal Mill generously donated some left-over uniforms with a Skunk on them.

Ducks & Skunks is basically an intersquad matchup with bragging rights on the line. It serves as LCU's fall schedule for evaluations and preparation for the 2017 season.

All three games will be played regardless if one of the teams sweeps the first two games.

Ducks & Skunks Schedule

Game 1 – Friday, Oct. 21 – 3:00 PM
Game 2 – Saturday, Oct. 22 – Noon
Game 3 – Sunday, Oct. 23  – 1:30 PM

All games played at Hays Field
