Television Slate Set

SEC announces 2022 national television schedule

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Eleven Vanderbilt baseball games will be televised during the 2022 season on the ESPN family of networks, the Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday.

The Commodores will appear on national television in six of their 10 SEC series while the series with Tennessee and Florida will feature multiple televised games.

The television slate begins March 15 on SEC Network as Vanderbilt welcomes Michigan to Hawkins Field for a matchup in what will be a rematch of the 2019 College World Series finals.

The Commodores will then be featured on ESPN2 twice across the next two weekends, including both of their series openers at South Carolina (March 24) and against Tennessee (April 1) at home. Vandy will appear on SEC Network in the second game of the Tennessee series (April 2).

All three games of the Florida series will appear on national television (April 15-17) beginning with the series opener airing on ESPN2. The second game of the weekend will be featured on SEC Network while the series finale between the Commodores and Gators is set to be televised on ESPNU.

The second game of the Kentucky series (April 23) will be aired on SEC Network followed by an ESPNU matchup in Vanderbilt’s series opener with Texas A&M (April 28) the next weekend.

The annual Battle of the Barrel between Vanderbilt and Louisville will be featured on SEC Network on May 3 as the Commodores welcome the Cardinals to Hawkins Field for the first time since 2018.

Vanderbilt’s final televised matchup of the regular season will come in the series finale at Georgia (May 8) on SEC Network.

Additional “wild card” games in the final weekend of conference play will be determined at a later date.

All other home contests not scheduled for a national broadcast will appear on SEC Network+.

Vanderbilt opens the season Feb. 18 by welcoming Oklahoma State to Hawkins Field for a three-game weekend series. It marks the second consecutive season that the Commodores will begin the season at home.
