The Arkansas baseball team held its 2014 media day on Friday.
5NEWS spoke with the players about being more relaxed this season with less pressure and expectations. The Diamond Hogs come in unranked in most polls, and ranked No. 25 by Baseball America.
Last season the Hogs struggled at the plate in big games. Now they have more experience with most their hitters back and talk about how that will help them in the 2014 season.
Among the local players we spoke with- Van Buren outfielder Tyler Spoon, Farmington pitcher Chris Oliver, Prairie Grove pitcher Jalen Beeks.
The season begins Friday, Feb. 14 at 3 p.m. at Baum Stadium against Appalachian State.
