After a grueling regular-season journey, 64 college baseball teams remain with hopes of winning a national championship. They are two steps away from the College World Series. The first one being regionals, which begin on Friday.

Bracket Information

Each regional consists of four teams that will play a double-elimination format until just one team is left standing. The 16 group winners will advance to the super regionals, a three-game series for the right to play in the College World Series.

Games will start on Friday with the No. 1 seed taking on the No. 4 seed in every regional. The No. 2 and No. 3 seeds will also face off to get things started. Play will continue in each group until every team except for one has two losses. Once a team loses twice, it's out.
