Baseball Reveals 2023 Schedule

Nov 14, 2022

TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Baseball today announced their 2023 competition schedule, highlighted by 31 home games at Hi Corbett Field.

Pac-12 Network television selections for conference series, along with first pitch times for all games, are anticipated to be released in December.

The Wildcats 2023 campaign, their second under the direction of head coach Chip Hale, features 31 home contests, an early season test at the high-profile MLB4 Tournament in Scottsdale, and 21 games against nine teams who qualified for the 2022 NCAA Tournament. Four of Arizona's 2023 opponents finished last year ranked in the final D1Baseball Top 25 poll of the season, including three who ended the year in the Top 10.

Arizona will kick off the season on Friday, Feb. 17 at the MLB4 Tournament held at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, the Spring Training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies. There, the Wildcats will take on Tennessee, Michigan, UC San Diego, and Fresno State in a yet-to-be-determined order.

Following the season-opening challenge in Scottsdale, the Wildcats will return home for a seven-game homestand that features three-game series against West Virginia (Feb. 24–26) and North Dakota State (March 3–5) as well as a midweek tilt against Cal Baptist on Tuesday, Feb. 28. Arizona's home opener is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 24 against a West Virginia squad that finished with a winning record of 33-22 (14-10 Big 12) last season.

The Wildcats last test before Pac-12 conference play is a road midweek game at Grand Canyon on Tuesday, March 7. Arizona will continue to square off against non-conference opponents in midweeks scattered throughout the season and in a three-game series during their conference bye week. The Cats travel for midweek games at Cal State Fullerton (March 15) and Grand Canyon (May 2) and host midweeks against Utah Tech (March 21), Grand Canyon (March 28), New Mexico State (April 11), New Mexico (April 25), and Nevada (May 10). During their Pac-12 bye weekend May 5–7 Arizona will host a three-game series against Air Force, the reigning Mountain West Tournament Champions.

One of the more notable dates on the home calendar, a non-conference midweek matchup against in-state rival Arizona State, is booked for Wednesday, April 19 at Hi Corbett Field.

Arizona opens Pac-12 play at home against the California Golden Bears on Friday, March 10 for the first of a three-game series that goes March 10–12. The Cats will also host Oregon (March 31–April 2), Washington (April 6–8), Utah (April 21–23), and USC (May 18–20) this season.

Road conference series against UCLA (March 17–19), Arizona State (March 24–26), Washington State (April 14–16), Oregon State (April 28–30), and Stanford (May 12–14) await the Wildcats.

Following the conclusion of the regular season will be the second annual Pac-12 Baseball Tournament, hosted at Scottsdale Stadium May 23–27. This year's tournament will feature the top nine teams in the Pac-12 competing in a brand new format. The tournament winner will earn the Pac-12's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, the field for which will be announced on Selection Monday, May 29.

The 2023 NCAA Tournament will begin with Regionals June 2–5, advance to Super Regionals June 9–12, and conclude at the Men's College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska June 16–26.
