WKU Baseball and Softball announced Monday that it will stream 28 WKU Baseball games at Nick Denes Field and all 25 home games for WKU Softball on Facebook Watch for the 2022 season. 

There will be two options for Hilltoppers fans to stream games. The primary stream will be the WKU PBS Facebook Live stream on Hilltopper Sports Satellite Network (HSSN) and the secondary stream will be on the Hilltoppers Sports Properties Facebook Page (HSP), which will feature a stream called “Behind The Mic,” allowing for baseball and softball games to be streamed simultaneously.

WKU Baseball will have 28 of their 32 home games streamed on the Facebook Live feeds. HSSN will be the primary stream, streaming 14 games while HSP’s “Behind The Mic” will stream the other 14 games. There will also be a radio broadcast available for every WKU Baseball game. 

WKU Softball will have all 25 of their home games available to watch on the Facebook Live feeds. Seventeen of these games will be on HSSN while the other eight will be on HSP.

WKU Softball will open its season with the Aggie Classic in College Station, Texas. WKU will kick off at 10 a.m. CT against UT Arlington on Feb. 11. 

The team will then head home for their home opener in the form of a doubleheader against Central Michigan and Bellarmine on Feb. 18. The doubleheader will be streamed on HSSN.

WKU Baseball will kick off their season at Nick Denes Field hosting Western Illinois at 3 pm on Feb. 18. This game, along with the rest of the weekend series against Western Illinois, will be streamed on HSP’s “Behind The Mic.”
