In case you haven’t been paying attention to Kentucky baseball this year, they’ve had a good season, and they have a chance to improve on it. The Wildcats are 31-17 this year, and are 11-13 in SEC play. With the season winding down. the Wildcats are looking to give themselves a chance to host during the NCAA Tournament, which would prolong the life of Cliff Hagan Stadium, where the Wildcats are set to play their final regular season home series ever in that stadium against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

If Kentucky can pull out a winning record in conference play, they’ll have a much better chance at hosting, and giving Cliff Hagan Stadium more life.
