For the seventh time in program history, Ole Miss was selected to host an NCAA Baseball Regional, the NCAA announced Sunday. The Ole Miss baseball team was one of 16 programs selected by the NCAA as a regional host.

The entire NCAA Tournament bracket, including the eight national seeds, will be announced at 11:00 a.m. CT on Monday, May 30 on ESPNU. At that time, Ole Miss (43-17) will find out which three teams will be coming to Oxford for the regional.

The Oxford Regional will begin June 3 at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field and will run through June 5 with play going until June 6 if necessary. The complete regional schedule with game times will be announced Monday.

Ole Miss holds a 43-17 record heading into the tournament after making a run to the SEC Tournament semifinals in Hoover, Alabama. The Rebels also collected eight victories over top-10 teams throughout the season and finished 18-12 in SEC play. This is the 14th postseason appearance for the Rebels in head coach Mike Bianco’s 16 years at the helm. All seven times the Rebels have hosted a regional have come under Bianco’s tenure.

“We are excited to host another regional at Swayze Field in front of our outstanding fans,” said Bianco. “To serve as a host for the NCAA Tournament is a terrific reward for our team’s success this season. We look forward to welcoming three other teams to Oxford that will experience the best atmosphere in college baseball.”

Tickets for the tournament will be available in all areas of the stadium. Ticket books for general admission will be sold for $60, reserved seating will be $70, box seating will be $80 and Diamond Club seating will be $200. Each ticket book gains admission to every game of the Oxford Regional.
