Canes Baseball Earns NCAA Tournament Berth
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes earned a berth in the 2019 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship Monday, marking the program’s 46th trip to the postseason.
With their selection to the Starkville Regional, the Canes return to the postseason for the first time since 2016. Miami will also play outside of the state of Florida in the regional round for the first time since 2013, when they were the No. 2 seed in the Louisville Regional.
Second-seeded Miami (39-18) will join host and first-seeded Mississippi St. (46-13), third-seeded Central Michigan (46-12) and fourth-seeded Southern (32-22) for the first round of the postseason. The Hurricanes own an all-time NCAA Regional record of 126-46 (.733). Miami’s all-time mark in the NCAA postseason stands at an impressive 192-99 (.660).
Miami is 3-1 all-time against Mississippi State, last taking two games from the Bulldogs during the 2005 Coral Gables Regional. The Hurricanes have never played against Central Michigan or Southern University.
The Hurricanes, who have had a consistent presence in the top 25 for the last seven weeks, finished the regular season 19-6 over their final 25 games. Miami went 1-1 as the No. 4 seed at the ACC Baseball Championship this week, beating No. 9 seed Virginia, 10-3, and falling to No. 5 seed North Carolina in 11 innings, 7-5.
NCAA Regionals, which will consist of four-team double-elimination tournaments at 16 campus sites, will get underway Friday (May 31) and run through Monday (June 3), as necessary. The eight regional winners will advance to Super Regional play, again at campus sites, June 7-10. Those eight winners will then move on to the College World Series, which begins play Saturday, June 15, at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska.
