The field of 64 teams competing for the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship was announced Monday, May 26 by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee.

The "Road to Omaha" begins for 64 college baseball teams this Friday as at 16 Regional Tournaments.

The LSU Tigers (44-14-1) earned the nation's overall eighth seed which means the Tigers will host the Baton Rouge Regional and possibly a Super Regional should LSU win its Regional.  LSU will be the number one seed for the Baton Rouge - Regional this weekend.

LSU will face number four seeded Southeastern Louisiana (SELA) Lions (37-23) on Friday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. at Alex Box's Stadium.  ESPN 3 will televise the LSU versus SELA game.

In the other match-up at the Baton Rouge Regional, number two seeded Houston (44-15) will face the number three seed Bryant (42-14) on Friday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. The Houston versus Byrant game will also be televised on ESPN 3.

The national top eight seeds are Oregon State (42-12), Florida (40-21), Virginia (44-13), Indiana (42-13), Florida State (43-15), La.-Lafayette (53-7), TCU (42-15) and LSU. The top eight seed for Indiana marks a first for a Big Ten institution. 

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) led all conferences in the number of teams in the championship field with 10, the most for a single conference in the history of the tournament. 

Each of the 16 regionals features four teams, playing a double-elimination format. The regionals are scheduled to be conducted from May 30 to June 2 (if necessary).

Selection of the eight super regional hosts will be announced on ncaa.com on June 2 at approximately 10 p.m.
