NCAA Baseball Regionals Set

If you yearn for a playoff atmosphere in June, there’s not much for you in MLB or the Bus Leagues. Fortunately, we have college baseball, which starts the season in the frigid months so it can coincide with kids actually being in school instead of on beaches somewhere.

Friend of the site Brian Foley has been running the highly successful College Baseball Blog for a couple of years now, and he and his staff have done their usual bang-up job of previewing the early rounds that lead up to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. Check up on your local teams by reading the capsules below:

Athens Regional

Ann Arbor Regional

Baton Rouge Regional

Cary Regional

College Station Regional

Conway Regional

Coral Gables Regional

Fullerton Regional

Houston Regional

Lincoln Regional

Long Beach Regional

Raleigh Regional

Stanford Regional

Stillwater Regional

Tallahassee Regional

Tempe Regional

I’m more than a little bummed that my hometown U. of Virginia squad won’t be hosting a regional this year. They flopped at home the past couple of years and failed to advance, so maybe it’s just as well that they’re being shipped out to Fullerton, where the Titans will be facing the pressure of moving on in front of a home crowd.

Thanks for keeping us up to date, Brian! There’s nothing quite like the *PING!* of the bat in early summer.

  1. Remember the Fullerton Regional is on ESPN U this season so at least you can watch the games.

  2. This is just one of the reasons that I can’t stand Comcast; for whatever reason, they don’t carry ESPNU. I’m moving out into Campbell County in two weeks(it’s just a three mile shift in location, actually), and Jet Broadband, the cable provider for Campbell and other surrounding counties, does carry it. Too little, too late, in my case.

  3. Did anyone else notice that in both basketball and baseball, the two-time defending champions failed to make the tournament (Florida and Oregon State)?

    I almost wrote about this in March and I’m saying it now: there should be an automatic bid, in any collegiate sport that determines its champion through a tournament, for the previous year’s champ.
