Gainesville, Fla.

The Gators will be one of the 16 NCAA Regional sites next weekend.

The University of Florida learned on Sunday night that it was awarded one of 16 NCAA Baseball Regional sites. Four teams will compete at McKethan Stadium in a double-elimination tournament starting on Friday, May 30.

 

The winner will advance to the best-of-three Super Regional to be held the following weekend at eight different sites. The 64-team field for the NCAA Tournament will be announced live on ESPNU on Monday at 12 p.m.

 

“We’re extremely happy about hosting games in Gainesville,” head coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. “It is great news for the program, our players, the University and the fans and we appreciate the support.”

 

SEC Champion Florida (40-21) advanced to the finals of the SEC Tournament for the second time in four years after winning the league title for the third time in five years.

 

UF will be hosting NCAA Regional action for the fifth time under O’Sullivan after emerging victorious four years in a row from 2009-12.

 

McKethan Stadium has been the site of 11 NCAA Regionals during its existence, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2005, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Prior to the 1999 season, when the current NCAA Super Regional format was introduced, the Orange and Blue advanced to the CWS three times it hosted NCAA play: 1991, 1996 and 1998.

 

The other 15 schools chosen as host venues include: Cal Poly, Florida State, Indiana, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisville, LSU, Miami (Fla.), Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Rice, South Carolina, TCU, Vanderbilt and Virginia.
