With 14 of the first 17 games at Baum-Walker Stadium, Arkansas’ 2022 baseball season was released Wednesday afternoon.
It features 54 regular-season games, including 10 conference series and a much-anticipated return to Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock.
The defending SEC champions will open the season, the 100th in history, hosting Illinois State in a three-game series (Feb. 18-20).
The Hogs’ first of two trips to minor league ballparks during the 2022 campaign comes the following weekend at the Round Rock Classic (Feb. 25-27) in Round Rock, Texas.
Arkansas will play Indiana, Stanford and Louisiana at Dell Diamond, home to the Texas Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate Round Rock Express, on FloBaseball.
The Razorbacks’ non-conference slate at Baum-Walker Stadium also consists of weekend series against Southeastern Louisiana (March 4-6) and UIC (March 10-13).
Midweek opponents making the trip to Fayetteville include Grambling (March 15-16) and Missouri State (May 3) as well as four in-state foes: Little Rock (March 29-30), UCA (April 5), UAPB (April 12-13) and Arkansas State (April 19-20).
Notably, Arkansas will return to Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock, Ark., after a two-year hiatus to square off against UCA (April 26).
