UMHB baseball’s series win over Howard Payne closes regular season, propels Cru into ASC Tournament

BELTON- There are times when moments in sports seem to play out in exactly the way they should happen. 

In the ninth inning of Saturday’s regular season finale against Howard Payne, Cayden Musgrove was called on to pitch. It was not an opportunity he had been expecting. After all, the Arizona native had gone 39 games without seeing the field. But in the final inning of the last home game of the 2022 season, UMHB head coach Mike Stawski decided to change that.

And for the first time in his collegiate career, the Fort Worth native enters the final weekend of the regular season as the conference leader in home runs.
