INDIANAPOLIS, In (Louisiana Tech Athletics) – Louisiana Tech’s baseball program has been named as one of the 20 possible programs to host a postseason NCAA Regional. LA Tech, along with three other C-USA programs, was announced among the 20 predetermined preliminary-round sites for this year’s Division I Baseball Championship.
Of the 20 selected sites from Friday morning’s announcement, 16 teams will host regional-round games. NCAA Regionals will run from June 4-7 and will be followed by NCAA Super Regionals on June 11-14.
The final cut, which will bring the number of selected sites to 16, will be revealed at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT on Sunday, May 30.
Louisiana Tech joins C-USA West Division rival Southern Miss and East Division foe Charlotte as the three Conference USA teams to make the top 20. The C-USA is tied for second with the PAC 12 and Big 12 with three potential regional hosts.
The Bulldogs have made eight NCAA Regional appearances in program history. Hosting a regional at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park would mark a new first in LA Tech Baseball history.
