FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas baseball team officially opened fall practice on Friday, holding an afternoon practice session at Baum Stadium.
Head coach Dave Van Horn
met with the media before practice and discussed his excitement for getting fall practice underway.
“This fall is going to be pretty intense,” Coach Van Horn said. “We’re trying to teach guys how we want to play and that’s play hard. We’ve been doing a lot of coaching. I think we’re all energized and ready to go to see what we got. There’s going to be a lot of teaching and evaluating going on this fall.”
Even as practice gets underway, construction continues on the new Baseball/Track Indoor Practice Facility. Coach Van Horn commented on the progress of the construction.
“That’s pretty exciting,” Coach Van Horn said. “It’s really going to be a great help for us in recruiting. We’re putting together practice plans right now thinking of how we could be using that (facility) next fall. You throw in another practice area for us and it gives us another option to use our hours properly and get our work in.”
The Razorbacks continue fall practice this weekend with a pair of scrimmages. The team will scrimmage on Saturday at approximately 12:30 p.m., while Sunday’s scrimmage will start at approximately 2:15 p.m.
The fall season culminates with the annual Red-White series. Dates and game times for the series will be announced at a later date.
