College Baseball Host Sites for Tournament

The NCAA Tournament for college baseball is set to take place, and Texas A&M’s College Station will be the station (that pun may or may not have been intended) for some great college baseball that will be played. The Kansas Jayhawks may be sitting at home this year, but it’s always good to watch the other programs in the nation, especially our “friends” in the Big 12.

The Texas A&M Aggies are one of sixteen sites in the tournament’s first round, and the Aggies finished the season 42-16 in a terrific year of baseball for the squad.

LSU, UNC, Virginia, South Carolina, George Horton’s Oregon Ducks (same record as the Aggies), Arizona, Florida, UCLA (what a season), Rice, Purdue, Stanford, N.C. State, Florida State (always field a great team), and Baylor will be schools hosting games.

UNC and Baylor are tied for the most wins at 44, while the least number of wins goes to the ACC’s Miami Hurricanes with 36. There are many ACC and Pac-12 squads hosting games in the tourney, as well as a couple of Big 12 teams with Baylor and Texas A&M being two of the best in the entire field.

Florida State, by the way, will be hosting games in the tournament for the 29th time in school history, with the Aggies hosting for the second year in a row and the ninth team in school history.

It’s going to be great watching some college baseball until it boils down on the 15th of June in Omaha, Nebraska when the 66th College World Series is played. Texas A&M, by the way, knocked off Kansas 10-4 and KU was later sent packing in the worst of ways after losing to Missouri.
