There are 16 regional sites which will all be double elimination play. The 16 winners are then paired off into 8 super-regionals which are best of three. Those eight winners then move on to Omaha starting June 14. The eight teams are put into two four-team groups, which play a double elimination series and the winners of each group play a best of three for the championship.
The top eight seeds are (in order): Miami, North Carolina, Arizona State, Florida State, Cal State Fullerton, Rice, LSU, and Georgia. All eight of these schools are hosting a regional.
The other regional hosts are: Michigan (a #2 seed, a school in Tucson is #1), North Carolina State, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Coastal Carolina, Nebraska, Texas A&M, and Long Beach State.
Apparently my screed against UCLA inspired the Bruins to play better down the stretch and earn a postseason berth after all as the #2 team in the Fullerton bracket. It is the first time UCLA has made postseason play in baseball for three consecutive years.
Dallas Baptist became the first independent school to make the tournament since Cal State Northridge in 1992.
