Ohio State Makes NCAA Baseball Regional, Headed to Greenville, SC

It was thought to be a safe bet, but you never know until the pairings are officially announced. And for Ohio State, that announcement was good news, as it has been selected to travel to Greenville, North Carolina to take part in a first round regional of the NCAA baseball tournament.

Accompanying Ohio State in Greenville will be No. 1 seed and host East Carolina, No. 2 seed South Carolina, and No. 4 seed UNC-Wilmington. Ohio State is the No. 3 seed.

As regionals go, this is one in which Ohio State does have a chance to battle its way out and potentially advance to a super-regional. Host East Carolina is a No. 12 seed, meaning there’s not a top ten national seed to battle through.

Still, with the seeding of No. 3, it’s clear that Ohio State is not expected to make it through the regional in Greenville and doing so would be a large upset and surprise. But it’s much more possible than say, a Gainesville or Tallahassee Regional.

The last time the Buckeyes advanced out of a regional to the super-regional was all the way back in 1999. They have participated in the College World Series just four times under a much different format, with their lone national title coming in 1966. Ohio State has not advanced to the College World Series since 1967.

It’s second life, and second season time. It all gets underway this Friday, June 1st at 2 PM Eastern with Ohio State playing No. 2 seed South Carolina on ESPN2.
