NCAA Baseball Tournament To Be Announced on Monday | Latest Bracketology

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)
  • Gainesville, Florida – Florida (42-17)
  • Greenville, North Carolina – East Carolina (43-16)
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota ­– Minnesota (41-13)
  • Lubbock, Texas – Texas Tech (39-17)

  • Raleigh, North Carolina – NC State (40-16)
  • Stanford, California – Stanford (44-10)
  • Tallahassee, Florida – Florida St. (43-17)

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