      JONESBORO, Ark. (1/12/23) – A program-record 35 home games highlights Arkansas State’s 2023 baseball schedule, as head coach Tommy Raffo announced the challenging 56-game slate Thursday.

      Raffo’s 15th season as A-State’s skipper begins with 15 of the first 16 games at home, starting with Opening Day at Tomlinson Stadium on Feb. 17 – the first game of a three-game series against in-state foe Arkansas-Pine Bluff. A midweek road test at reigning College World Series Champion Ole Miss concludes the first week of play.

      A-State then returns home for a 12-game home stretch with weekend series versus Illinois State (Feb. 24-26), Missouri State (March 3-5) and Eastern Illinois (March 10-12) and midweek tilts with Mississippi Valley State (Feb. 28-March 1) and Central Arkansas (March 14).

      A five-game road swing follows during Arkansas State University’s Spring Break week, commencing with the start of Sun Belt Conference play at Louisiana (March 17-19), followed by midweek contests at Mississippi State (March 21) and Memphis (March 22).

      The Red Wolves then return home to face ULM (March 24-26) before returning to the road for bouts at UCA (March 28), Texas State (March 31-April 2) and Arkansas (April 4).

      First-time foe and new Sun Belt member James Madison then makes the trip to Jonesboro for a Thursday-Saturday set (April 6-8), followed by a midweek matchup with Murray State (April 11). The Red Wolves will then head to Atlanta for a three-game series at Georgia State (April 14-16).

      A-State then returns home for five straight games, hosting Ole Miss (April 18), Old Dominion (April 21-23) and Henderson State (April 25) before traveling to former Sun Belt foe and in-state rival Little Rock (April 26) and Southern Miss (April 28-30).

      The Scarlet and Black are at home for eight of the final 11 games in the month of May, beginning with a midweek test against Memphis (May 2) before a three-game series with Troy (May 5-7). Little Rock (May 9) returns for the final midweek contest of the season, then A-State closes out league play at Appalachian State (May 12-14) and at home against South Alabama (May 18-20).

      The Sun Belt Conference Tournament, which will once again be played at Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery, Ala., runs May 23-28, with the top 10 of 14 teams qualifying for the field.

      A-State returns 13 players who saw action in 2022, including a pair of players who hit 10 homers apiece in Brandon Hager and Jared Toler, along with 22 newcomers in the offseason.
