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.
