A $7 general admission single-day ticket will allow a fan admission into every game that day with first-come, first-serve seating in the metal bleachers on the first-base concourse and the grass berms behind both dugouts and down both foul lines.

Single-day tickets, if available, cannot be purchased until Thursday, May 9 and are available in person at the Bowlin Stadium ticket office during each day of the tournament, online at Huskers.com, at the main Nebraska Ticket Office or by calling 1-800-8-BIG-RED.
