Baseball starts 19th season on radio

FAYETTEVILLE – Razorback Sports Properties and University of Arkansas Athletic Department have announced KQSM 92.1 FM The Ticket will carry all Razorback baseball games during the 2010 season on the Razorback Sports Network from ISP. Last season, KQSM 92.1 FM carried Razorback games during the College World Series. In Benton County, KURM 790 AM and sister station KURM 100.3 FM will also carry games.

"We are very excited about the addition of KQSM 92.1 FM The Ticket as our flagship station on the baseball radio network," said Ryan Gribble, Razorback Sports Properties General Manager. "This addition will provide Razorback baseball fans with a very strong signal day and night in Washington and Benton counties. With the support of affiliates like KQSM, we are able to bring the excitement of Razorback baseball to fans around the state. In the next few days, we expect to announce the entire line up of affiliates on our network."

Chuck Barrett and Rick Schaeffer will once again handle all the play-by-play and color commentary duties for all 56 regular season games and all postseason action. Barrett is entering his 19th season of calling Razorback baseball action. Schaeffer is in his 10th season, having worked in 1995 and then rejoining the network in 2001.

The Razorback baseball broadcasts can also be heard over the internet at ArkansasRazorbacks.com thru RazorVision. All broadcasts begin with the Dugout Show starting 20 minutes prior to every game.

Arkansas, ranked as high as No. 15 in the preseason polls, opens the 2010 season with a Feb. 19-21 series against Ball State at Baum Stadium. The Razorbacks will play their first seven games of the season, and 12 of the first 15, on their home field.
