Arkansas Baseball Red-White Fall World Series
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas baseball team will wrap up its fall practice with the annual Red-White World Series beginning this Sunday with a pair of games at the Tyson Sports Complex in Springdale.
The Razorbacks were forced to move fall practice to the Tyson Sports Complex when natural grass was added to Baum Stadium. The Red-White series was originally slated to begin on Oct. 24th.
“We decided to move the series up since we’ve had a lot of rain the last couple of weeks,” Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn said. “We’ve lost some days of practice and we thought it would be best to end fall practice now and get an early start in the spring when we can practice at Baum Stadium.”
Game one of the Red-White series will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday and will be shortened to seven innings. Game two will follow and will also be abbreviated to seven innings.
The best-of-five series continues with a nine inning game scheduled for Monday beginning at 1 p.m. Games four and five will be played if needed at 1 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and will also be a full nine innings.
In addition, the Razorbacks have canceled Scout Day which had been slated for the Oct. 23rd. Professional scouts should contact the Razorback baseball office with any questions.
Arkansas opens the 2004 season Friday, Feb. 19, with a three-game series against Louisiana Tech at Baum Stadium. The Razorbacks play their first eight games of the season at home, including series’ against St. John’s and McNeese State.
