FANS TO ACCESS HOGPEN THROUGH A TEMPORARY GATE FOR VANDY SERIES

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Fans sitting in the HogPen at Baum Stadium for this weekend’s Arkansas-Vanderbilt series will need to enter through a temporary gate located next to the sidewalk on Razorback Road. The new HogPen gate will not be ready for this weekend, so fans wishing to sit in the HogPen will need to enter through the temporary gate.

The recently enlarged HogPen is a picnic area located beyond the left field wall. Fans can sit on the grass, bring their own chairs or use one of the 24 picnic tables available. Fans can also bring their own food and drink into the HogPen, but must enter through the HogPen Gate. No food or drink is allowed through any of the other gates at Baum Stadium.

Reserved seats for the Arkansas-Vanderbilt series are sold out for the Saturday contest, while less than 300 reserved seats remain for both the Friday and Sunday games. General admission tickets remain for all three games. General admission tickets allow access to the HogPen and Standing Room Only areas.

The University of Arkansas will run shuttle service from Lot 56 on the corner of Razorback Road and 6th Street for each game this weekend. The shuttle will pick up in Lot 56 and drop off at Gate A of Baum Stadium beginning 90 minutes before game time. Return service to Lot 56 will be provided following the game with pick up at Gate A.

Friday’s game has a first pitch of 6:35 pm and features a match up of two of the top pitchers in college baseball, Arkansas’ Nick Schmidt and Vanderbilt’s David Price. The first 1,000 fans attending the game will receive a Razorback Baseball coffee mug courtesy of Dasani.

The first 1,000 fans to Saturday’s 2:05 pm game will receive a Razorback Baseball sunglass case courtesy of the US Army. Sunday’s game time is 1:05 pm and the first 1,000 fans will receive a Razorback Baseball license plate courtesy of Spectrum Brands. The first 3,000 fans will also receive a hybrid battery charge pack courtesy of Spectum Brands’ Ray-O-Vac.

Advance tickets to all three games can be purchased by calling the Razorback Ticket Office at 1-800-982-HOGS or by logging on to www.hogwired.com. Reserved seats are $10 and general admission tickets are $7.00.
