Following the first three games in Missoula, the Mustangs open their home campaign at Dehler Park in Billings on Saturday, May 28th, against the Northern Colorado Owlz. That first homestand of the season will continue through the Memorial Day weekend, concluding with an afternoon game on Monday, May 30th, when all veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and active-duty military will be able to attend for just $1.00.
In addition to hosting Northern Colorado on Memorial Day, the Mustangs welcome the Idaho Falls Chukars to Dehler Park on Labor Day (September 6th) in 2022. The Mustangs will spend the Independence Day holiday on the road vs. the Rocky Mountain Vibes in Colorado Springs, CO.
