ATHENS, Ga. – The 2017 television schedule for Georgia baseball has been finalized after the Southeastern Conference announced its schedule Wednesday.

Georgia will be featured nine times across the ESPN/SEC networks as part of the 2017 SEC Baseball television package. Overall, 30 of Georgia’s 32 home games will be available to view on television or streamed online. All but two home games at Foley Field not televised will be digitally produced exclusively as SEC Network + events and available on the WatchESPN app, and on SECNetwork.com through participating providers. Also, a vast majority of Georgia’s road conference games will be available on SEC Network +.

The 2017 SEC baseball television schedule steps up to bat with the return of the Bases Loaded special on the opening night of conference play, Friday, March 17. The show features a live compilation of seven games – all 14 teams – taking place that evening across the southeast. Georgia battles LSU in Baton Rouge for its SEC opener at 8 p.m. ET. Also, every Bases Loaded game will be available in its entirety, streaming live via SEC Network +.

Beginning March 14, ESPN networks will combine to carry 98 SEC baseball games, 75 of which air on SEC Network. This year’s schedule also includes five wildcard selections, allowing the SEC Network the opportunity to determine the best television matchup at a later date. The schedule closes out with the SEC Network airing the entire SEC Baseball Tournament, outside of the Championship game on ESPN2 on May 28.

All 56 regular season Bulldog games will be available on the Georgia Bulldog Sports Radio Network. All Georgia baseball games will be carried locally on WRFC 960 AM as it will serve as the primary home for all broadcasts. Fans can listen to every game online for free through the official website of the Bulldogs, georgiadogs.com or the mobile app streaming service TuneIn.

Georgia returns to full squad workouts in January. The annual 1st Pitch Banquet has been scheduled for Friday, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Classic Center and will feature former Bulldog All-American and Major Leaguer Gordon Beckham. For more information and to purchase tickets, please call (706) 542-7971 or email thodge@sports.uga.edu. The college baseball season opens on Feb. 17, and the Bulldogs play host to College of Charleston in a three-game series.
