Baum-Walker Stadium Named Potential Host Site
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Baum-Walker Stadium has been tabbed as one of 20 potential host sites for the NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals, the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee announced on Friday.
Arkansas, one of seven teams from the SEC named to the 20-site list, has hosted regionals in each of the past three postseasons and eight times overall. NCAA Super Regionals have been held at Baum-Walker Stadium four times in its history.
Due to the health and safety protocols surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it was deemed necessary to conduct NCAA championship competition at predetermined sites. Of the 20 selected sites, the committee will choose 16 to host regional-round games. Eight of those 16 regional sites will host super regionals.
The final 16 predetermined sites will be revealed at 7:30 p.m. CT Sunday, May 30.
Based on recent guidance from the NCAA COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group, the NCAA will allow up to 50% fan capacity at these predetermined sites. Exact capacity percentages will vary by site, depending on state and local health mandates due to the pandemic.
