No. 1 overall seed Florida: The Gainesville Regional

Posted May 29, 2018

The sites of super regionals are determined based on regional results, but top eight seeds, which will be determined on Monday, will host super regional should they advance out of their regional.

The speculation entering the ACC Tournament was that the Miami baseball team had to at least reach the Championship game to have at best an outside chance at an at-large bid.

The Tigers, who haven't hosted since 2010, were not one of the 16 Regional hosts announced Sunday evening.

The Razorbacks will have to wait a little while longer to learn whether they will be a top eight seed, which would keep them at Baum Stadium every game prior to the College World Series.

But if the Gators want to make a deep postseason run, they'll need to get out of their recent slump.

FSU is 4-6 against Mississippi State, 2-1 against Oklahoma and 2-0 against Samford in the postseason.

Florida State scored the game's final six runs in the ACC Championship on Sunday to down Louisville and win a third ACC title in four years and a second straight. Another possible opponent out of the N.C. State regional could be 2 seed Auburn. The journey begins this week. Jacksonville (39-19) is the No. 2 seed in the four-team regional pod and Florida Atlantic (40-17-1) the No. 3 seed.

Stanford (44-10 overall), which won the Pac-12 by a game and a half over OSU (44-10-1), was also selected as a regional host.

Texas (37-20) will open its 59th appearance in the NCAA tournament with a game against Texas Southern (27-26) at 8 p.m. on Friday.

Raleigh, a junior catcher from Cullowhee, North Carolina, earned MVP honors after batting.333 with a home run and six RBI in four tournament games.

The Cardinal Nine had been playing relatively disciplined baseball as of late after having a subpar defense in the middle of the season, but the young team showed their youth today. The victor of the double-elimination regional earns a spot in the NCAA Super Regionals.
