CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The South Carolina baseball team will have at least 10 games televised on the ESPN family of networks with an additional 33 games on SEC Network Plus, the Southeastern Conference announced.
The Gamecocks will be on SEC Network for the final two games of the Auburn series. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, and noon on Sunday, March 31. The first two games of the Alabama series also will be on SEC Network. The series starts Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m. EST and continues Friday, April 5, with another 7 p.m. EST start.
South Carolina will be on ESPNU on Thursday, April 11, at Florida. First pitch for that game is at 7:30 p.m. The Gamecocks move back to SEC Network on Saturday, April 20, against Texas A&M with a 4 p.m. first pitch.
The Gamecocks host Vanderbilt on Saturday, May 4, with an 8 p.m. first pitch on ESPNU. The home conference schedule wraps up with a three-game series against Kentucky (May 10-12).

The SEC Network will close regular-season coverage of the baseball season with a Bases Loaded special that will air on Thursday, May 16, when Carolina is at Mississippi State. The show features a live compilation of seven SEC games. The network then has a wildcard format for the final weekend of the season, as South Carolina's series at Mississippi State could be picked up on either ESPNU or SEC Network.
Every game of the SEC Tournament, scheduled for May 21-26 in Hoover, Ala., will be televised by the ESPN family. The first 16 games are on SEC Network with the final game (Sunday, May 26) airing on ESPN2 at 3 p.m. EST.
