NCAA Baseball regional sites revealed; selection show Monday

by Barca Blog

For the third consecutive year, Vanderbilt will hit the road for the opening round of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.

The following schools were awarded regional host sites on Sunday afternoon:

Arizona State (47-8), Tempe, Ariz.
Arkansas (40-18), Fayetteville, Ark.
Auburn (40-19), Auburn, Ala.
Cal State Fullerton (40-15), Fullerton, Calif.
Coastal Carolina (51-7), Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Connecticut (47-14), Norwich, Conn.
Florida (42-15), Gainesville, Fla.
Georgia Tech (45-13), Atlanta
Louisville (48-12), Louisville, Ky.
Miami (Florida) (40-17), Coral Gables, Fla.
Oklahoma (44-15), Norman, Okla.
South Carolina (43-15), Columbia, S.C.
Texas (46-11), Austin, Texas
TCU (46-11), Fort Worth, Texas
UCLA (42-13), Los Angeles
Virginia (47-11), Charlottesville, Va.

Of the 16 locations, where do you think the Commodores will be sent? The popular opinion among national pundits is that Vanderbilt could earn a No. 1 seed and travel to Connecticut. The Huskies will host the event off-campus at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Conn.

We'll find out on Monday when the complete field of 64, with regional pairings and site assignments, will be announced on ESPN at 11:30 a.m. CT. Fans are welcome to attend a viewing party with the team at the Commodore Grill in the Holiday Inn Vanderbilt on West End. Doors will open at 11 a.m.

NCAA Regionals will be held from June 4-7. Each regional consists of four teams competing in a double-elimination format.


  1. We went 2-2 against Arkansas and our over-all record is the same, what gives!!!!

  2. What is our overall home record as opposed to away? (For this season) Just curious.

  3. Home: 27-6, Away: 12-9

  4. Arkansas can put 6500 in the seats. We can't do that. We didn't play well at all down the stretch. That is what gives.

  5. Compare Vandy's profile next to Auburn...VU definitely has the better resume. In baseball it is not about the best resume, it is about geography and spreading the wealth among the conferences. No way Uconn should "host" a regional. But they would rather do that then put a fith SEC site and another Southern site.

  6. I predict a Vanderbilt Regional trip too Connecticut will be a benefit!
    Two players hail from Connecticut along w/ other Northeast players.
    My wife is a UCONN grad but our heart is w/ Vanderbilt. Corbin loves seafood!
    Hope it happens.

  7. Arkansas can put 6500 in the seats and we can't. Sad but true.....
