UK Athletics Issues Fan Reminders Ahead of Baseball and Softball Home Weekend

LEXINGTON, Ky. – With large crowds expected at home baseball and softball games at the Barnhart Family Athletics Complex throughout the coming weekend, UK Athletics is issuing reminders to fans to ensure their experience goes as smoothly as possible with multiple events going on within the same sector of campus at the same times.

Both the baseball and softball teams are nationally ranked and hosting Southeastern Conference series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Kentucky Proud Park and John Cropp Stadium.

Fans are urged to arrive early as the same parking lots serve both the baseball and softball facilities. Shuttle service will drive fans up to the gates for fans who park in the Kroger Field Green and Blue Lots starting one hour prior to first pitch.

Should weather impact game times, fans will be encouraged to follow @UKBaseball and @UKSoftball on social media for updates.

Additionally, UK Athletics urges fans to use caution against counterfeit and invalid tickets. Only tickets purchased directly through the following outlets are guaranteed to be valid:

UK Athletics cautions against purchasing tickets through other outlets that may be unable to provide this assurance. That risk is magnified for sold-out games like Saturday’s.

Financial and ticket scams are increasing in frequency. Scams are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to identify. UK Athletics is sharing the following tips to help fans remain safe and secure.
