SUPPORT THE WILDCATS - Season Ticket Info?

????????????TUCSON, Ariz. ?C?The Arizona baseball team, the preseason top-ranked team in the Collegiate Baseball poll, has added another No. 1 selection after the first weekend of the year. UAˇ?s opening series victory over Georgia in Athens has propelled the Wildcats into the top spot in the Feb. 25 Baseball America poll. It marks the first time since 1989 that the Wildcats have been the No. 1 team in the publicationˇ?s poll.

?

????????????ˇ?Itˇ?s nice to have the national recognition,ˇ± head coach Andy Lopez said. ˇ?I was very impressed with Georgia. Itˇ?s an extremely talented group there in Athens and UGA is going to win a lot of games this season. To move up in the poll despite dropping a game is a real indication of how difficult it can be to go to the SEC and win a series.ˇ±

?

????????????The Wildcats dropped the series opener 9-7 last Friday, but handed the Bulldogs a 7-1 loss on Saturday and rallied late for a 9-8 win on Sunday to steal the series. In five all-time meetings between the two schools four contests have been decided by two or less runs.

?

????????????The top-ranked Cats will open their home schedule this weekend when they host Sacramento State for a three-game series at Kindall Field Friday-Sunday.

?

????????????ˇ?It was really a great experience to play in front of the large crowds in Athens and weˇ?d really like to have a home field advantage like the one theyˇ?ve got there,ˇ± Lopez said.

?

????????????Georgia officials indicated that the Saturday contest between the Wildcats and Bulldogs was the largest attended non-conference game at Foley Field. Estimates put the number of those turned away at the gate between 400-500 fans.

?

ˇ?Our Wildcat fans can really play a big part in our success this year and their support is always valued by this program.ˇ± Lopez said.
