TUCSON, Ariz. - Opening day is just two weeks away for the Arizona baseball team which began its official team practices earlier this week. The Wildcats open their 2012 season against North Dakota State on Friday, Feb. 17, at 6 p.m. at Hi Corbett Field.

Arizona hosted its first official full team workout at Hi Corbett Field on Wednesday. The Wildcats were set to host intrasquad scrimmages on Friday and Saturday, before a day off on Sunday in advance of a full week of practices next week.

The video scoreboard from Kindall Field/Sancet Stadium has been moved to Hi Corbett Field and is ready to be installed. Additionally, a yellow line is being added atop the eight-foot padded wall across the outfield fence to designate home runs. The taller metal fencing that extends above the padded wall will count as a homerun when a ball crashes into the metal fencing or over the wall altogether.

Arizona baseball season tickets, individual game tickets and mini-plans are on sale through the McKale Ticket Office and online. Seats in reserved seating locations are still available for purchase, but are selling quickly.

Be sure to keep up to date with the Wildcats as their preparations continue for the season opener. Follow Arizona Baseball on the team's official Facebook and Twitter (@ArizonaBaseball) pages. Also, follow head coach Andy Lopez (@CoachAndyLopez) on Twitter, too.
