LSU will host

Just as expected, the LSU baseball team was awarded a host regional site for the 2009 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.

LSU will host the Baton Rouge Regional that starts on Friday and if the Tigers advance they will move on to a super regional the following weekend with the dates of the games to be determined.


The NCAA Selection Committee will announce the top eight national seeds on Monday at 11:30 a.m. LSU is projected to be a top eight national seed and would host the super regional if they advance out of the Baton Rouge Regional.
