ATHENS, Ga. – The 2018 television schedule for Georgia baseball has been finalized after the Southeastern Conference announced its schedule Monday.
Georgia will be featured nine times across the ESPNU/SEC networks as part of the 2018 SEC Baseball television package.

Also, a vast majority of Georgia’s road conference games will be available on SEC Network +.
The 2018 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 16.
