Postseason baseball is back at Alex Box Stadium.
LSU was one of 16 hosts unveiled Sunday by the NCAA, giving the Tigers a home regional for the first time since 2009.
The entire 64-team tournament field will be unveiled at 11 a.m. Monday (ESPNU), as well as the top-8 national seeds. LSU (43-16) is expected to be one of those top 8 after winning the SEC regular-season championship.
The regional will be the Tigers’ 25th overall and 20th in Baton Rouge. They have failed to advance either to a Super Regional or the College World Series only once in the previous 19 occasions they have played at home.
Besides LSU, two other SEC teams landed regional host sites: Florida and East Division champion South Carolina. Those two are also likely to land top-8 seeds.
Kentucky, which led the league standings for eight of 10 weeks and was one win away from the tying the Tigers for the outright crown, was not given a host site.
