Fan Guide: 2017 Fayetteville Regional
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The 2017 NCAA Fayetteville Regional begins Friday afternoon at Baum Stadium. Below are a few reminders that should help make this weekend of postseason baseball a more enjoyable one.
Free Shuttle Service
With capacity crowds expected and a limited number of parking spaces near Baum Stadium, fans attending this weekend’s NCAA Fayetteville Regional (June 2-5) are strongly encouraged to take advantage of a FREE Transportation Roundtrip Shuttle Service to Baum Stadium.
From Lot 56, fans can utilize the FREE fan shuttle service picking up in the Southeast corner of Lot 56 (near Razorback Soccer Field). Fans will be dropped off curbside at Baum Stadium.
With the Walmart Shareholders Meeting taking place at Bud Walton Arena, the shuttle service will be available for all games with the exception of Friday’s Missouri State vs. Oklahoma State game (2 p.m.). The shuttle will start at 4:30 pm on Friday (June 2) and run throughout the remainder of the regional. The shuttles will start two hours and 30 minutes prior to the first pitch of the first game and will run throughout the second game and post-game, picking up behind the home plate plaza.
Razorback Foundation members who have a designated 2017 baseball parking pass may use their pass(es) to park in the same lots they used during the regular season.
Limited public parking is available in the Baum East and the KeyTronics (Beechwood Avenue – northwest of Baum Stadium) lots and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the limited space and anticipated capacity crowds, fans are encouraged to carpool and to arrive early.
Additional parking will be available in Lot 56 located on the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Razorback Road. Fans parking in Lot 56 may take the complimentary shuttle to Baum Stadium.
