What is the NCAA selection process for the NCAA Division I baseball tournament?The NCAA fields a 64-team competition for the Division I tournament comprised of the 31 conference champions and 33 at-large teams. The NCAA Division I Baseball Committee also seeds the top eight teams in the competition.
How does the NCAA choose its regional host schools?The NCAA picks its 16 regional locations from the 64-school field of competitors. These schools may also host a super-regional competition if they win the regionals. Generally, each region’s No. 1 seed becomes a regional host, but financial considerations and geography also come into play. When a super-regional location school loses its games, it is eliminated from competition and hosting. The teams remaining in the competition bid to host the super-regionals.
