Auburn to host baseball NCAA Tournament regional

·1 min read

The Auburn Tigers baseball team will be playing in the postseason on their own diamond.

The Tigers were selected to host a regional for baseball’s NCAA Tournament on Sunday. This will be the first time since 2010 that Auburn will host a regional and it will be the fifth the Tigers have hosted one in its history.

Auburn will be pleased to be able to start the postseason in a familiar ballpark. The Tigers were recently bounced from the SEC Tournament in Hoover, Alabama, after losing to the Kentucky Wildcats 3-1. Auburn is one of four SEC teams to host a regional — Tennessee, Florida and Texas A&M will also host their own regionals for the tournament.

The Tigers didn’t play Florida this year, but they did play a series against both Texas A&M and Tennessee. Auburn was successful in winning its series against the Aggies two games to one, but the Tigers only managed to take a game against the Volunteers before being bested in the other two. Butch Thompson's squad is likely happy it gets to avoid the Vols for a bit longer, as they are currently the No. 1 team in the nation.

Auburn will have to wait until Monday at 11 a.m. CT to discover who they will play in the Auburn Regional.
