BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The LSU baseball team received a national seed Monday when the NCAA tournament field was announced. With the number seven national seed the Tigers would host the winner of the Miami regional if LSU wins the Baton Rouge Regional.
LSU will host Oregon State, Belmont and UL-Monroe this weekend in the Baton Rouge regional.
LSU will take on UL-Monroe Friday night at 7 p.m.
“I can’t lie – it’s very special to be back. Obviously I felt very strongly that we deserved to be in the field last year. Last year when we had this selection show, it wasn’t a very pleasant experience and I don’t want to ever feel that again. I felt that we deserved it and I’ll always feel that way,” LSU head baseball coach Paul Mainieri said following the NCAA selection show Monday.
