After the Regionals round of the 2019 NCAA Baseball Tournament ends, the eight Super Regional hosts will be announced. The winners of the eight Super Regionals will move on to the College World Series.

The Super Regionals will be played June 7 through June 10. Here’s how the Super Regionals work, including how hosts are determined.

How Super Regionals hosts are selected

Super Regional hosts are first determined by seeding. The top-8 seeds from the Top-16 national seeds list are assured home field should they advance from the Regionals round, as long as the site has been approved by the Division I Baseball Committee. If a higher seed has not submitted a proposal, the lower seed will host if its proposal is deemed acceptable.

If a Super Regional is between two equally seeded teams, the committee will review hosting proposals and take into account selection criteria (including quality and availability of facilities, potential revenue and accommodations). For example, last year, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt both won their regionals as No. 2 seeds. The committee selected Vanderbilt. The Commodores had previously swept the Bulldogs during the regular season.

Here are the top 16 national seeds for this year:

  1. UCLA (47-8)
  2. Vanderbilt (49-10)
  3. Georgia Tech (41-17)
  4. Georgia (44-15)
  5. Arkansas (41-17)
  6. Mississippi State (46-13)
  7. Louisville (43-15)
  8. Texas Tech (39-17)
  9. Oklahoma State (36-18)
  10. East Carolina (43-15)
  11. Stanford (41-11)
  12. Ole Miss (37-25)
  13. LSU (37-24)
  14. North Carolina (42-17)
  15. West Virginia (37-20)
  16. Oregon State (36-18-1)

How Super Regionals work

The tournament starts with 64 teams, with four teams placed at 16 Regional sites. These are played in double-elimination format. The 16 winners then advance to the Super Regionals, which will be played at eight sites between two teams in a best-of-3 series.

Super Regionals pairings are determined by the initial bracket placement of the teams. For example, if all 16 seeded teams make it through the Regionals, then No. 1 will play No. 16, No. 2 will play No. 15 and No. 3 will play No. 14, etc., down to No. 8 against No. 9. This year, that means the winner of the Los Angeles Regional (No. 1 UCLA hosts) will play the winner of the Corvallis Regional (No. 16 Oregon State hosts). Even if one — or both — of the top-16 seeds fail to win the region, these matchups will remain in place. The winner of the Los Angeles Regional will play the Corvallis Regional, even if UCLA and Oregon State both are eliminated.
