For the 27th time in program history, the University of Miami has been selected as one of 16 Regional host sites for the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.
The last year Miami hosted a regional was 2015, when second-seeded East Carolina, third-seeded Columbia and fourth-seeded FIU visited Mark Light Field in late May through early June. Miami was awarded the No. 5 national seed last season, and after successfully capturing a Coral Gables Super Regional victory over VCU, made its 24th trip to the College World Series.
The Hurricanes, who won the 2016 ACC Regular Season Championship, have hosted an NCAA Regional for three straight seasons and four of the past five years.
The Coral Gables Regional field, as well as the entire field of 64, will be announced Monday at 12 p.m. on ESPNU’s Division I Baseball Selection Show “The Road to Omaha.”
