BLOOMINGTON, Ind. The first part of the 2022 schedule for the Indiana baseball program was revealed when Peak Events announced the field for the 2022 Round Rock Classic on Tuesday. The event features four world-class round-robin college baseball programs from February 25-27 at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas. Dell Diamond will host the Round Rock Express, the Triple-A subsidiary of Texas Rangers Indiana along with Arkansas, Louisiana-Lafayette and Stanford. The Round Rock Classic offers two games on each of the three days of the event and tickets are available now by clicking here. All games will be broadcast live on FloBaseball.tv. In the opener, Indiana and Arkansas will meet for the third time in program history. The teams split the previous two encounters, with the Hoosiers winning the first game in 1967 in San Antonio, Texas 13-3 and the Razorbacks coming the series with a 1982 win in Fayetteville, Ark. On Saturday afternoon, while a newer opponent, Stanford , the tournament will end on Sunday. The Hoosiers and Cardinal played three times each in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, with each team winning three times. Indiana led the number 3 seeded Stanford in Bloomington Regional’s second game in 2014, before the Cardinal won the last two games to make it to the Superregional round. The 2015 season opened in Palo Alto, California, and Indiana won two of three games en route for the third straight year in the NCAA Regional that year. Indiana was 26-18 years old a year ago and failed to enter the NCAA tournament for the first time under third-year coach Jeff Mercer.
