Nashville NCAA Baseball Regional teams announced

Nashville, TN, United States / The Game Nashville

The entirety of the 64-team NCAA Baseball Tournament field was released yesterday morning. The Vanderbilt Commodores, hosting their fourth consecutive NCAA Regional Hawkins Field, will be joined by Washington, Xavier, and UC Santa Barbara.

After a less-than-satisfactory result in this years NCAA SEC Baseball Tournament in Hoover, Ala., the Vanderbilt Commodores will, once again, have the opportunity to prove their postseason worth with home-field advantage.

Vandy went 43-17 this season with a record of 31-5 at their home ballpark. They will open the first round of the tournament against Xavier (30-28) at 7 p.m. this Friday. The Commodores faced the Musketeers earlier in the regular season with tremendous results, sweeping the three-game series.

Seasoned head coach Tim Corbin will guide Vanderbilt through their 11th straight tourney berth. Corbin-coached Commodore teams have made the postseason 12 out of the program’s 15 all-time appearances. Vanderbilt won out over Virgina 3-2 in the 2014 tournament for the program’s first national championship

UC-Santa Barbara (37-18) will play Washington (32-21) at 1 p.m. Friday. Those games will be streamed online only on ESPN3.
