RAZORBACK BASEBALL TO PROVIDE SHUTTLE SERVICE; POST GAME TRAFFIC FLOW ANNOUNCED
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— In an effort to accommodate the fans this season at Baum Stadium, the University of Arkansas will once again run a shuttle bus service from Lot 56 on the corner of Razorback Road and Sixth Street for each Southeastern Conference game. The shuttle will pick up in Lot 56 and drop off at Gate B 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 B.
Some parking around Baum Stadium will be limited this weekend as the University of Arkansas hosts the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Randal Tyson Track Center on Friday and Saturday.
Additionally, fans with scholarship parking passes are encouraged to enter the Baum Stadium north lot from Beechwood Drive west of the stadium. Cars traveling north on Razorback Road will not be allowed to turn left on to Baum Drive to access scholarship parking. This change is being implemented to ease traffic backups on Razorback Road.
The Hogs will host Georgia this weekend to open Southeastern Conference play. Friday’s game starts at 6:35 pm. Saturday and Sunday’s first pitch is slated for 12:05 pm.
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 $8.00.
