The 2019 College World Series started on Saturday, June 15 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska. What began as a 64-team tournament has been reduced to four teams through three previous rounds of play: the regionals — in which teams were sorted into 16 four-team groups playing a round-robin format — then the super regionals, where the 16 winners of the regionals were paired up into eight best-of-three sets — and finally the four best-of-three quarterfinal sets, which thinned the field to four.
For the next round, the semifinals, the four teams will play under double-elimination rules. The two teams left standing will then square off in a best-of-three set (beginning on Monday, June 24) to determine who is the 2019 NCAA champion.
