FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas’ return to postseason play begins Wednesday against Alabama in the first round of the SEC Tournament in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The 5-12 matchup will serve as the opening game of the tournament with first pitch set for 11 a.m. at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium, home of the Tennessee Volunteers.

The game will be televised on the SEC Network and streamed live through the WatchESPN app.

Arkansas is making the program’s 10th overall appearance at the SEC Tournament and first since the 2013 season. Under second-year coach Courtney Deifel, the Razorbacks closed out the regular season with a 31-21 record which marks a 14-game improvement from last year’s mark.
