Arkansas has scheduled its “bark at the park” promotion for April 25. That is the night in which fans can bring their dogs to the game and sit with them in the outfield.
One slight problem: that night’s opponent is Texas Tech, ranked No. 3 nationally in the preseason coaches’ poll. The game is scheduled to be televised by SEC Network and if the weather cooperates, the stadium will be packed.
Dave Van Horn made reference to that today during his speech at the Swatter’s Club. “I don’t know if there is going to be any room left for the dogs,” he said.
Something else to note: the bark at the park game has been rained out several times over the years.
