Clemson and South Carolina will host NCAA Regionals

Clemson will make an NCAA Tournament appearance for the 24th time in 25 years.

Both the Clemson and South Carolina baseball teams have been selected to host one of 16 NCAA Regionals when the NCAA Tournament begins this week. Coastal Carolina, (41-18) after winning the Big South Conference Tournament, also made the field with an automatic berth but will not host.

Clemson (41-18) won two out of three games at the ACC Tournament, but lost a tie-breaker to Florida State for a chance to play for the conference title that was eventually won by Virginia. The Cavaliers beat the Seminoles 7-2 in the ACC Tournament Championship game. Clemson did not host a regional last season, but still made it to the College World Series. The Tigers are one of five ACC teams picked to host a Regional this year.

The defending national champion South Carolina Gamecocks (45-15) were also picked to open the tournament at home despite not making it to the SEC Championship game that was won by the Florida Gators in a 5-0 win over Vanderbilt. The 64 team NCAA Tournament field will be announced on Monday at 12:30 p.m.
