COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina has been selected as one of the 16 regional host institutions for the 2011 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship as announced by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee on Sunday afternoon. By virtue of being awarded a regional, South Carolina has been selected as an at-large to the 64-team field of the NCAA Baseball Tournament. South Carolina heads into the postseason with a 45-14 record. More information on the 2011 Columbia Regional will be released following the announcement of the 64-team field on Monday afternoon at 12:30 pm on ESPN.

This will be Carolina’s 27th overall appearance in the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. South Carolina is the defending national champion after winning the CWS in 2010. South Carolina has reached nine College World Series as well as eight NCAA Super Regionals. South Carolina’s 12 consecutive trips to the NCAA Baseball Tournament (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) is the longest current streak of the 12 SEC schools.

This marks the 13th time in school history that the Gamecocks will host an NCAA Regional in baseball. Since the move to the Regional-Super Regional format, Carolina has hosted an NCAA Regional seven times (2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2011).
