The Springfield-Ozark Mountain Ducks have never started the season on the right foot until 2003. After dropping their first four season openers, they came away with a 10-0 win over Amarillo at home. The Ducks play in independent Central Baseball League. They’re one of three minor league teams in Missouri. The River City Rascals and the new Mid-Missouri Mavericks play in the Frontier league. They begin play Memorial Day Weekend.
