OXFORD, Miss. – For the sixth time in program history, Ole Miss was selected to host an NCAA Baseball Regional, the NCAA announced Sunday. The Rebels’ baseball team was one of 16 programs selected by the NCAA as a regional host.
The entire NCAA Tournament bracket, including the eight national seeds, will be announced at 11:00 a.m. CT on Monday on ESPNU. At that time, Ole Miss (41-18) will find out which three teams will be coming to Oxford for the regional.
The Oxford Regional will begin May 30 at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field and will run through June 1 with play going until June 2 if necessary. The complete regional schedule with game times will be announced Monday.
Ole Miss claimed the Southeastern Conference Western Division title, and was the No. 2 seed at the league tournament in Hoover, Alabama. This is the 12th postseason appearance for the Rebels in head coach Mike Bianco’s 14 years at the helm. All six times the Rebels have hosted a regional have come under Bianco’s tenure.
“We’re excited to be playing at home in June,” Bianco said. “It’s certainly a great reward, but one that we feel is very deserved by this team that has played so well and consistently over the course of the season. It’s great to have baseball in Oxford in June again to reward the Rebel Nation for the support they has shown us and the role they play in our success.”
Tickets for the tournament will be available in all areas of the stadium. Ticket books for general admission will be sold for $60, reserved seating will be $70, box seating will be $80 and Diamond Club seating will be $200. Each ticket book gains admission to every game of the Oxford Regional.
