FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Coming off a trip to the 2009 College World Series and a third-place national finish, head coach Dave Van Horn and the University of Arkansas baseball team open their season Feb. 19 at Baum Stadium. The Razorbacks will play 34 of their scheduled 56 games on their home field during the 2010 season, in addition to the program’s first trip to Central Arkansas in 23 years.
The Razorbacks’ first seven games of the season, and 12 of their first 15, will be played at Baum Stadium. Arkansas will also play host to five Southeastern Conference series against Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia, Auburn and South Carolina.
The 2010 season opens Feb. 19-21 with a three-game set against Ball State. The remainder of the non-conference home slate features matchups with Centenary, Kansas, Missouri State, Oral Roberts, Saint Louis, South Dakota State, Troy and Wisc.-Milwaukee.
