The 64-team NCAA Division I baseball championship field will be revealed at 12 p.m. ET with the selection showing airing live on ESPNU.
Indiana currently stands at 38-17 (.691) overall and is widely expected to be in the tournament field as either a 2 or 3 seed. Here are the latest projections:
- RPI: Indiana is currently ranked 29th, which when considered alone, would suggest that the Hoosiers would be a No. 2 seed.
- Baseball America has Indiana as a No. 2 seed in Arkansas. This projection was just completed on Sunday after the conference tournaments.
- D1 Baseball has IU as a No. 3 seed in Raleigh. This projection was just completed on Sunday evening.
The field will be divided into 16 regional sites. Each regional field features four teams, seeded 1-4, playing in a double-elimination format. All 16 regionals are scheduled from Friday, June 1 to Monday, June 4.
The one thing we know for sure is that Indiana will not be a No. 1 seed. The NCAA announced the top seeds that will host the 16 regional sites on Sunday:
- Athens, Georgia – Georgia (37-19)
- Austin, Texas – Texas (37-20)
- Chapel Hill, North Carolina – North Carolina (38-18)
- Clemson, South Carolina – Clemson (45-14)
- Corvallis, Oregon – Oregon St. (44-10-1)
- Conway, South Carolina – Coastal Carolina (42-17)
- DeLand, Florida – Stetson (45-11)
- Fayetteville, Arkansas – Arkansas (39-18)

Based on that slate of No. 1 seeds, wherever Indiana goes, it won’t be a short trip.
