Lincoln - Two new nine-game packages are now available for fans who want to see the Huskers' first baseball season in the Big Ten Conference under new Head Coach Darin Erstad. Named the Diamond Deal, fans can either purchase reserved tickets for nine games in the lower grandstand (sections 110 and 112) or in the Homerun Terrace (behind right field).
Fans are able to choose nine games from any of the Huskers' 31 home games in 2012. The non-conference season includes games with Kansas State, Louisiana Tech, Northern Colorado, Creighton, CSU Bakersfield, Wichita State and 2011 College World Series participant California. The Huskers will open the conference season against Illinois on Friday, March 23, before also hosting Iowa, Purdue and Minnesota at Hawks Field.
Total price of the package is just $90 for either the grandstand or Homerun Terrace. Outside of season tickets, the Diamond Deal gives fans the opportunity to buy reserved tickets before single-game tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 7.
