Alabama opened a rebuilt Sewell-Thomas Stadium last season and the result was an average of 4,608 per game, the program’s highest average since 2004. Ten of the 32 home games were sellouts as Bama ranked 10th nationally in average attendance and 12th overall among the 300 major college baseball programs.
Tide Pride and public tickets start at $190 for the season, while faculty/staff seating (limit of four per person) is $152. A full season package for seniors (65-plus) are $95 (limit of four per person). Fans can also explore some of the premium seating options at Sewell-Thomas Stadium, including the .525 Club and Home Plate Club areas. Both clubs allow fans a seat in the stands while also offering access to a hospitality area that features couches, tables, and flat-screen televisions, along with complimentary food and beverage. Those who purchase tickets to either of the premium seating clubs are also given parking passes to all home games.

The 2017 season begins on Feb. 17 as Alabama hosts Presbyterian College for the Crimson Tide’s season opener as part of a three-game series with the Blue Hose. The trio of games with Presbyterian kicks off a string of 21 consecutive home games at Sewell-Thomas Stadium, including non-conference series with Oral Roberts (Feb. 24-26), ULM (March 3-5) and Arkansas-Pine Bluff (March 9-12). The Tide will also square off in single matchups with Southern Miss (Feb. 21), Jacksonville State (Feb. 28), Troy (March 7), Eastern Illinois (March 14) and Samford (March 15), before closing out the homestand with the start of Southeastern Conference play against Missouri from March 17-19.
Alabama will then hit the road for five games before returning to The Joe to host Arkansas from March 31-April 2. Next up is a five-game homestand that starts with a solo contest against in-state UAB on April 11 followed by a three-game series with Texas A&M (April 13-15) and a midweek matchup with Alcorn State on April 18.
On April 25, the Crimson Tide will play its second game at home against Jacksonville State before hosting the LSU Tigers from April 27-29.
