Florida State baseball selected to host NCAA Regional

New, 36 comments

There will be more baseball in Tallahassee this summer as Florida State has earned an NCAA regional.

For the 33rd time in school history, Florida State has been selected as one of the sixteen sites of the NCAA postseason regional tournaments following a 37-20, 16-11 record. There was some uncertainty following the regular season if the 'Noles would be awarded the regional, but after a 3-1 performance in the ACC Tournament which included a trip to the championship and wins over top-10 RPI ranked teams in Miami and NC State, FSU reassured its position.

Overall, this is the 54th postseason appearance for the Seminoles as they have not missed the NCAA Tournament since 1977. Of the previous 53 tournaments, FSU won their regional tournament 25 times, including seven of the last eight years, moving them into the next round. As Florida State looks to make it to the College World Series for the first time since 2012, success has been hard to come by at that stage. The 'Noles currently hold the record for the most College World Series appearances without a title, earning runner up in three of those 21 appearances.

The full list of participants in each NCAA Regional will be revealed Monday at noon on ESPN.
