Cajuns & Tigers Will Both Host NCAA Baseball Regionals
There was never really a doubt these last few weeks that Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns and the LSU Tigers would be participating in NCAA Regional Baseball action. The only question was who might get to be the home team. Many speculated that the Cajuns, who had a record setting season, were a good bet to host a NCAA regional and that LSU might actually be traveling across the basin to play in Lafayette.
Last night the NCAA made it official Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns would in fact be hosting a regional and so would the LSU Tigers. While this is great news for South Louisiana college baseball fans there are still some questions that need to be answered. What teams will each school be hosting and will the Cajuns earn a coveted national seed?
All of those questions will be answered today at 11am when the official tournament selections are announced. Cajun fans are encouraged to be at Tigue Moore Field for the announcement. There will be free snow cones and popcorn for all the fans and the players and coaches will be in attendance for what could be a historic occasion in Ragin Cajun athletic history.We will also find out who the Tigers will be hosting in the Baton Rouge regional too.
The other regional sites that were announced by the NCAA last night include: Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Florida and South Carolina out of the SEC. Miami, Florida State, and Virginia out of the ACC. Plus Indiana out of the Big 10, Louisville out of the American Athletic Conference, Rice from Conference USA, Oklahoma State and TCU out of the Big 12, Oregon State from the Pac 12 and Cal-Poly out of the Big West Conference.
