The Arkansas Razorback baseball team (44-17) capped off a sweep of the Fayetteville Regional with a win over TCU late Sunday night. The No. 5 ranked team in the country will host SEC rival, 12-seed Ole Miss (40-25) in a best of three Super Regional at Baum-Walker Stadium beginning this Saturday.
The weekend marks Arkansas’ eight Super Regional in school history and the third time since 2015. If the Razorbacks can take two of three against Ole Miss, the school will make its 10th College World Series appearance in school history and its fifth since 2009. The Razorback baseball team went 4-2 in the 2018 College World Series, falling to Oregon State for the national championship.
All tickets for the weekend’s Super Regional sold out soon after the stage was set. Fans can still find tickets on re-sell sites such as StubHub.com and VividSeats.com.

The Arkansas Razorback baseball team has had six players taken during the first two days of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Redshirt junior right-handed pitcher Isaiah Campbell and junior outfielder Dominic Fletcher were the first Razorbacks taken on the draft’s first night, taken in back-to-back picks in Competitive Balance Round B as Fletcher was taken by Arizona Diamondbacks, No. 75 overall, and Campbell was taken by Seattle Mariners, No. 76 overall.
Campbell could eventually see playing time with the Mariners AA affiliate Arkansas Travelers.
Fletcher and Campbell are the 15th and 16th Razorbacks to be taken in the draft’s first three rounds since 2010. Campbell is the sixth pitcher since 2013, while Fletcher is the first position player taken that high since Andrew Benintendi went in the first round to Boston in 2015.
On Tuesday, the Razorback’s left-hander Matt Cronin was taken in the fourth round, No. 123 overall, by the Washington Nationals; shortstop Jack Kenley was taken in the eighth round by the Detroit Tigers; right-handed pitcher Jacob Kostyshock was also taken in the eighth round by the Colorado Rockies; and righty Cody Scroggins was taken in the ninth round by the Boston Red Sox.
