"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.
