Kansas City Kansas Community College’s long-awaited opening of its new baseball complex will come Saturday when the Blue Devils host Neosho County in a Jayhawk Conference doubleheader.
Opening ceremonies will be held at 12:45 p.m. with the first game of the twin bill starting at 1 p.m. The two teams will also meet in a Sunday doubleheader also starting at 1 p.m.
Part of a $4 million baseball, soccer and track renovation, opening ceremonies were originally scheduled for Feb. 23 but were postponed by snow.

Board members include chairman Don Ash, Cathy Breidenthal, Ray Daniels, Mary Ann Flunder, Wendell Maddox, J.D. Rios and Clyde Townsend.
