The Howard College baseball program started in 1952 and Troy Neel was their first player to make it to the Major League level.
The Howard County Junior College was established in Big Spring in 1945. 148 students began lessons in September 1946, in the hospital wing of the former Big Spring Army Air Force Bombardier School (later Webb Air Force Base). Five years later the school moved to a 100-acre site in southeast Big Spring which came to include an administration-classroom-library building, a practical-arts building, a greenhouse, a music building, dormitories and a 10,000-seat stadium. The school's name changed to Howard College at Big Spring by 1974.
