TEXARKANA, Ark. — University of Arkansas head baseball coach Dave Van Horn will be the guest speaker today at the annual Texarkana Razorback Club meeting.
The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at Arkansas Convention Center. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children under 12. The event will be catered by Big Jake's BBQ, and an auction is planned.
"The proceeds from the ticket sales and auctions go to the University of Arkansas' Athletic Foundation," said Alan Brown, a member of the club. "In addition, the meeting gives local Razorback fans a chance to see coaches upfront. It is exciting to have Coach Van Horn coming to Texarkana."
Scholarships, facilities and various student-athlete programs are funded by the net profits from the club meetings.
Van Horn took over as head coach in 2003 and has led Arkansas to four World Series appearances. He is going into his 16th season with the Hogs and has guided Arkansas to 14 NCAA tournament berths.
Van Horn coached the Texarkana Bulldogs baseball team from 1989-93 and finished with a record of 214-72 — a 74.8% win percentage.
