UCLA Baseball Earns No. 1 National Seed

After winning the 2015 Pac-12 Baseball Championship, UCLA earned the No. 1 overall national seed for the 2015 NCAA Baseball Tournament, it was announced on Monday morning.

The Bruins were already selected as a host for an NCAA Regional, which will begin on Friday, May 29th at Jackie Robinson Stadium and go through June 1st.

With the No. 1 overall seed, winning the NCAA Regional would likely assure that UCLA would host an NCAA Super Regional.

The Bruins, who won a school record 22 conference games en route to their 11th conference title, will make their eighth NCAA tournament appearance in the last ten years and their 20th overall.

This weekend's Regional will include No. 2 regional seed Ole Miss, No. 3 regional seed Maryland and No. 4 regional seed Cal State Bakersfield.

UCLA will play CS Bakersfield on Friday at 8 p.m. in a game televised nationally by ESPNU and Maryland will play Ole Miss in the first game at 4 p.m. on ESPN3.

Under John Savage, the Bruins have been to the College World Series three times, in 2010, 2012 and 2013, playing for the title in 2010, before losing to South Carolina.

In 2013, Bruin baseball got over the hump and won the program's first-ever College World Series title, sweeping through Omaha and knocking off Mississippi State to win the national championship.
