The 16 regional sites for this year's NCAA Division I Baseball Championship were announced on Sunday afternoon.

The 16 regional sites for this year's NCAA Division 1 Baseball Championship were announced on Sunday afternoon by the NCAA. Each of the 16 hosting schools are guaranteed a spot in the 64-team field, so the LSU Tigers are now locked in.

Here's the explanation of how the regionals work from the NCAA:

Each regional field features four teams, playing in a double-elimination format. All 16 regionals are scheduled to be conducted from June 1 to June 4.

Led by Colorado native Kevin Gausman, LSU is looking to bounce back from a disappointing showing at the SEC Tournament. Considered one of the best teams in the nation coming into the season, the Tigers have a 43-16 record this season and they're hosting a regional for the 20th time in history.

The other remaining 15 teams that are hosting regionals this year are North Carolina, Virginia, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Miami (Fla), Oregon, Florida, Purdue, Rice, UCLA, Stanford, North Carolina State, Florida State, Arizona and Baylor.
