The Gators baseball team is seeking a sixth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Florida baseball team will learn its postseason fate in a little less than an hour.

The 2013 NCAA Baseball Tournament Selection Show is at noon on ESPNU. You can watch via ESPN3.com here.

The Gators (29-28) are in unfamiliar terrain under sixth-year head coach Kevin O’Sullivan, who has led the Gators to the NCAA Tournament every year since taking over the program in 2008.

The Gators have made three consecutive trips to the College World Series but after losing 18 players from those teams to the professional ranks, the Gators entered a rebuilding mode in 2013.

The Gators started 11-16, won 14 of 17 games in the middle of the SEC schedule to move a season-high six games over .500 (25-19) on April 27, and then lost nine of their final 13 games to fall back on the bubble.

The regional hosts were announced Sunday, with LSU, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Virginia Tech, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Oregon State, Oregon, Cal State Fullerton, UCLA, Louisville, Kansas State, North Carolina State and Florida State opening the tournament at home.
