College baseball will be back in North Augusta next year, as Georgia Southern and the University of Georgia will be facing off at SRP Park in March.
The game will be played Wednesday, March 4, at 6:35 p.m. UGA will be the host team.
"We're excited to make our third trip to SRP Park where we’ve played well in front of great crowds,” said Georgia head coach Scott Stricklin in a press release. “We enjoyed opening the new stadium in 2018 with a win over Clemson, and then last year we defeated The Citadel. It’s a great place to watch a ball game, and we are looking forward to playing Georgia Southern this season. We hope to see the stadium filled with red and black!”
Tickets for the game start at $10 for general admission/standing room only and go up to club seats for $25.
“We are very excited about playing the University of Georgia at SRP Park. This is a great venue for what should be an electric college baseball environment for our players and fans,” said Georgia Southern University Head Coach, Rodney Hennon in the press release.
