MI baseball to face FGCU in NCAA Tournament

30 May 2017

We're readying for that with the 2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament. Dallas Baptist is the third seed in the TCU region in Fort Worth, Texas. As the No. 1 seed in their regional pod, the Beavs host and play No. 4-seeded Holy Cross Friday, June 2nd at 7 p.m. PT. Nebraska earned the No. 2 seed in the pod while Yale is No. 3.

No. 4 seed Central Connecticut State and host TCU - the No. 6 national seed in the 64-team field - are the other two teams in the Cavaliers' regional. Florida Gulf Coast and MI are the other two teams in the four-team, double-elimination regional in Chapel Hill. We knew no matter who was in our regional, they were going to be three really good teams.

The University of Miami baseball team isn't used to straddling the fence when it comes to being invited to the NCAA tournament. "I just think it says a lot about our ballclub the way we just kept scrapping and battling and clawing and grinding".

The Regional will last through Sunday with games being played on Monday if needed. SEC teams Auburn, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt also made regionals.

Selection committee chairman Scott Sidwell, the athletic director at San Francisco, said Miami, Connecticut (33-25), Old Dominion (37-21) and SC (35-25) were the first four teams held out of the tournament.
