The double elimination tournament features host LSU, Rice Northwestern State and Marist College. CST will air all games live from Alex Box Stadium.
"The road to Omaha starts in Baton Rouge for these teams and their fans and we are excited to be bringing all the action live to our viewers throughout the South," stated CST head Rod Mickler.
The Baton Rouge regional is one of 16 regional tournaments being played around the country this weekend. The winners of these tournaments will meet the following weekend in eight Super Regional tournaments with those winners moving on to Omaha for the College Baseball World Series.
Traveling to Baton Rouge this weekend will be Rice University (41-17), Northwestern State (40-18) and Marist College (33-19). They will be hosted by LSU (38-20), who is hosting a regional for the 16th straight year and 17th overall.
The tournament is a double elimination affair with Number 1 seed LSU taking on No. 4 Marist in game 1 beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, followed by No. 2 Seed Rice matching up with No. 3 Northwestern State in game two at 6 p.m.
Saturday will showcase a Doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. with a loser's bracket game (game 3) followed by the winner's bracket game at 6 p.m. (game 4).
Sunday will also include a doubleheader with game four loser taking on the game three winner (game 5) at 1p.m. and then at 6 p.m. winners of Game 4 and 5 meet (game 6).
If necessary, a game 7 will take place on Monday at 1 p.m.
The winner of the Baton Rouge Regional will take on the winner of the New Orleans Regional in the Super Regionals the following weekend. That Super Regional winner will qualify for the College World Series in Omaha.
