Lincoln - Nebraska Baseball Coach Darin Erstad announced on Tuesday the dates and times for the Huskers' annual Red-White Series at Hawks Field. The three-game series will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 3:30 p.m., while game two will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 3:30 p.m. and the final game of the series will be a night game at Hawks Field on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6 p.m.
The Red squad will be looking for redemption after being swept by the White squad last fall.
Admission is free for all three games of the Red-White Series and a concession stand will be open at Hawks Field. Parking for every game will be free as well.
After qualifying for the conference tournament last season for the first time since 2008, the Huskers return a hungry group in 2013 that will be looking to make the NCAA Tournament. Fans will see quite a few new faces at Hawks Field, as the coaching staff has brought in 13 new players for the 2013 season.
The Huskers have already announced their 54-game schedule and open play on Friday, Feb. 15 at CSU Bakersfield. Nebraska will play 18 games against 2012 NCAA Tournament teams, including two games against 2012 College World Series qualifier Arkansas at Hawks Field. The series with the Razorbacks marks the third straight year that the Huskers have hosted a CWS team from the previous season, as UCLA visited Lincoln in 2011 and California split a four-game series at Hawks Field last season.
