Sixty-four teams opened the 2019 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament, with defending champion Oregon State ranked 16th overall among the No. 1 seeds, but already a number of teams are looking to fill the shoes of the since-eliminated Beavers.
This year’s tourney is chock-full of touted contenders, with top-ranked UCLA (47-8) leading the pack. Vanderbilt (49-10), Georgia Tech (41-17), Georgia (44-15) and Arkansas (41-17) round out the top five, with East Carolina (43-15) and LSU (37-24) among other notables in the top 10..
Since the opening of the tourney, both OSU and fellow No. 1 West Virginia have been eliminated, while underdogs like No. 3 Campbell, No. 3 Florida State and No. 3 Fresno State are among teams still alive. Florida State has already advanced to Super Regionals for a showdown with LSU. Other Super Regional matchups locked in include No. 1 Arkansas vs. No. 1 Mississippi, No. 1 Vanderbilt vs. No. 3 Duke and No. 1 UNC vs. No. 2 Auburn.
Split into 16 four-team double-elimination regionals, this year’s bracket features 16 teams advancing to eight two-team Super Regionals, with the tournament ultimately concluding with Omaha’s College World Series from June 15-26.
