    Arizona Baseball is more than halfway through the 2013 season playing as defending National Champions. 2012 was a magical year for the Arizona Baseball program, but the focus is on the here and now. Head Coach Andy Lopez has his team hitting on all cylinders in a conference widely known as one of the best in the country. Simply put, Arizona is playing good baseball. They lead the conference in many team categories including batting average, on base percentage, runs scored, runs batted in, triples, walks, and stolen bases. Combine that with the experience of Coach Lopez and you have a team that knows how to win.

    The 2012 season left many holes to fill in the roster for 2013 but several players have stepped up to fill key roles from those lost after the championship season. Five Wildcats find themselves in the top ten in batting average in the Pac-12 including Brandon Dixon, Johnny Field, Trent Gilbert, Zach Gibbons and Kevin Newman. In addition to that, Dixon leads the league in runs scored, hits (tied with teammate Field), stolen bases and triples (tied with teammate Gilbert). Its a young team but a team with a lot of talent.

    Second Season at Hi CorbettThe Wildcats have taken advantage of their second year at Hi Corbett Field, located in the heart of Tucson. The historic ballpark has quickly taken on an

    Arizona Baseball identity that is evident by the crowds filing in every home game wearing red and blue. This was most apparent during the wild comeback win against rival Arizona State on April 16th in front of over 5,000 fans. The victory defined what makes this team special; a group of hardnosed student-athletes who know how to play the game. This team has created their own identity but has always had that one common goal that all of the teams before them fought for and that is to end their season in Omaha.

    Remaining Home ScheduleThere is plenty of Arizona Baseball left to play at Hi Corbett Field this year including a seven game home stand opening with a three game series against Alabama State set to start on Friday, April 26th at 6 PM. Following the weekend series, the Wildcats will have a quick turnaround and stay at home to face in-state rival Arizona State on Tuesday, April 30th at 6 PM for a Wildcat Red Out. Finishing the home stand, Arizona will face Pac-12 opponent Washington in a three game series beginning on Friday, May 3. After a couple of weeks on the road the Cats will finish the 2013 regular season with a home series against USC starting Friday, May 24th.

    TicketsTickets for the remaining home games at Hi Corbett Field are still

    available and can be purchased online at or by calling 621-CATS. If you order your tickets online you will save $2 off the game-day price.

    Also still available are 7 game mini-plans with which you can save up to 26% off the single game price and you get to choose the 7 home games to attend.

    Groups of 15 or more are eligible for the group ticket discount at $4 per ticket. Have you ever wanted to celebrate your birthday with the Cats? That is also available and includes tickets, concession vouchers and other great items for the special birthday guest. To purchase group tickets, a birthday package or for more information call 626-3110 today.

    majority of these revenues come from charitable gifts, ticket sales, corporate sponsorships, and television revenues. In addition, the Arizona Board of Regents authorizes 315 tuition waivers annually in support of our student-athletes. The charitable gifts come from the collective group of donors that comprise the Wildcat Club. The financial support provides scholarships, state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, team travel, and all the other tools that help our student-athletes succeed on and off the playing surface. Invest in Arizona student-athletes and help us reach 12,000 members in the Wildcat Club by June of 2013.
