When the Regional sites were announced, it was not a surprise to see three ACC teams hosting. When the rest of the field was announced on Memorial Day, the number of ACC teams in contention for a championship skyrocketed.
Eight ACC teams, 2/3s of the league, made the field of 64 to compete for the NCAA Baseball Championship. These teams were Virginia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Florida State, Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, and North Carolina State.
Three of those teams, Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Miami, will host a regional. Mississippi, St. John’s, and Virginia Commonwealth will travel to Charlottesville for Virginia’s regional. Alabama, Elon, and Mercer will travel to Atlanta for Georgia Tech’s regional. And Texas A&M, Florida International, and Dartmouth will travel to Coral Gables for Miami’s regional.
The other 5 teams will have to travel to play their regional. Florida State, who will be a 1 seed although they are not hosting, will travel to Norwich, Connecticut to play their regional, along with Connecticut (who is hosting), Oregon, and Central Connecticut State.
Clemson will have to travel to Auburn’s regional, along with Southern Mississippi and Jacksonville State. They will be a 2 seed in that regional.
North Carolina will have to travel to Norman for Oklahoma’s regional, along with California and Oral Roberts. They will be a 3 seed in that regional.
Virginia Tech will have to travel to Colombia, SC for South Carolina’s regional, along with the Citadel and Bucknell. They will be a 2 seed in that regional.
And, the last ACC team to make the field, North Carolina State will travel to Myrtle Beach for Coastal Carolina’s regional, along with College Of Charleston and Stony Brook. They will be a 3 seed in that regional.
Also, Virginia and Georgia Tech were selected as two of the eight national seeds in the tournament.
Good luck to all the ACC Teams that made the field!
