Baseball Season is Here, NWA!

Spring is synonymous with baseball, and fans in NWA are in for plenty of action and excitement with new seasons for the Arkansas Razorbacks and NWA Naturals. With cool extras like fan giveaways, fireworks shows and family entertainment, there’s something for everyone at the ballpark!



Season Opener March 21 & 22

The University of Arkansas Razorbacks are ready to return to the diamond at Baum Stadium for their 23rd season. The ‘Diamond Hogs’ will kick off SEC play against the University of Alabama Crimson Tide during a season-opener home stand on March 21 & 22.


Baseball fans love sunny afternoons at the ballpark, and Fayetteville’s Baum Stadium has all the bells and whistles. The high-def video score board keeps fans up to speed on replays, stats, updates and promotions. And regardless of where you’re seated — near the baseline or with a cold one in the Hog Pen — Baum Stadium has great sight lines.

The 2020 Razorback baseball season runs from Feb. 14 through June 13. For tickets and season information, click here.



Season Opener April 9

The Naturals, the Double-A Affiliate of the two-time World Series champion Kansas City Royals, will play more than 70 home games this season, which ends Sept. 7.
