Wolfpack Baseball returns home after a disappointing trip to Greensboro. The Pack must lick its wounds and rest up quickly, however, because it was made official yesterday that NC State Baseball will be hosting an NCAA Regional at Doak Field. For more information, including ticket information, you can go here.
The bracket for the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament has been announced and the Pack will welcome (2)Vanderbilt, (3)UNC-Wilmington, and (4)Sacred Heart to town for the Raleigh Regional at Doak Field beginning on Friday, June 1st and running thru Monday, June 4th. For the full tournament bracket, you can go here.
The games schedule for Raleigh is as follows:
Friday, June 1st
- 2 p.m. - (2)Vanderbilt vs. (3)UNC-Wilmington (Game 1)
- 7 p.m. – (1)NC State vs. (4)Sacred Heart (Game 2)
Saturday, June 2nd
- 2 p.m. – Loser Games 1 and 2 (Game 3)
- 7 p.m. – Winner Games 1 and 2 (Game 4)
Sunday, June 3rd
- 1 p.m. – Winner Game 3 vs. Loser Game 4 (Game 5)
- 6 p.m. – Winner Game 4 vs. Winner Game 5 (Game 6)
Monday, June 4th (if necessary)
- 1 p.m. – Winner Game 6 vs. Loser Game 6 (Game 7)
The Raleigh Regional has been paired with the Gainesville Regional. If the Pack emerges unscathed from Raleigh, they will likely be rewarded with a trip to Gainesville, Florida to take on the tournament’s top seeded Florida Gators for a best of 3.
We’ll have a preview of the teams that will be visiting the Pack a little later in the week.
Go Pack! The road to Omaha starts in Raleigh this year!
