WVU Baseball in Line to Host NCAA Tournament Regional
WVU Baseball sits as the No. 6 team in the nation with less than a week to go in the regular season, per D1 Baseball’s May 15 poll.
In what has been the best season in program history so far, accolades continue to roll in for the Mountaineers: ones that could play an impact on their postseason performance, rather than just another trophy to add to the case.
WVU Baseball Ranked Inside Top 10 by Multiple Major Publications
The top sixteen seeded teams in the tournament each get to host a regional during the opening round of the tournament, as the Mountaineers did in 2019.
Once that round finishes, the top eight seeds remaining get to host a super regional. With WVU Baseball currently in the top eight, they’d get the chance to host playoff games in Morgantown in front of a crowd fully bought in to Randy Mazey’s program through the first two rounds of the tournament should they advance that far (assuming they stay the course).
After barely missing out on a tournament bid last season, the Mountaineers have preached all year about how every game matters. As the top seed in the Big 12, they’re nearly a lock to make the tournament now, even if they lose out against Texas and in the conference tournament. But the chance to host a pair of playoff rounds in front of some of college sports’ most passionate fans gives them a reason to keep their foot on the pedal… all the way to Omaha.
