Dallas Baptist University picked-up their very first invitation to the NCAA baseball tourney. The Patriots will make the short drive to College Station as the #2 seed. Texas A+M (#1) and Houston (#3) are potential road blocks in the regional round. Illinois-Chicago rounds out the bracket as the four seed.
The opening round games will begin on Friday May 30,2008 with Dallas Baptist squaring off with the Houston Cougars. With any luck the Patriots (4 Luray 2008 players) will have an extended run into the tournament!
James Madison University (#4 seed) stays close to home but will have to face #1 N.C. State in the opening game of the Raleigh bracket.
University of Virginia players will score some frequent flyer miles as the HOOS head west as the #3 seed. UVA opens with #2 seed UCLA and also will deal with #1 seed (#5 overall) Cal-State Fullerton and Rider.
Good luck to all the players from the 64 teams! Visit www.ncaa-baseball.com for full brackets!
