The 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Selection Show highlights Memorial Day with the announcement of the full field of 64 teams. On Sunday afternoon, the 16 host sites were announced for the regional round. Colorado native Kevin Gausman and his LSU Tigers are already in the field as one of the 16 hosts, but they are waiting to see if they will receive one of the eight national seeds. This seems likely given its 43-16 record and high standing in the polls.
ESPN's Jeremy Mills has LSU as the No. 4 national seed in his latest bracketology update, hosting the Louisville Cardinals, the Southeastern Louisiana Lions and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. Given that the Selection Committee's prefers to lessen travel for these regionals, this could very well be the set up.
Also of note, Colorado native Pierce Johnson and the Missouri St. Bears are looking to be a No. 3 or No. 4 seed. They are projected by Mills as a No. 3 seed in No. 1 UCLA's regional.
The Utah Valley Wolverines are hoping for one of the last spots in the tournament. Despite a 47-12 record, the Wolverines don't have an automatic bid after winning the Great West Tournament since the conference doesn't hold one of the confirmed spots in field. They did have a 32-game winning streak during the season before a mid-May loss to the Utah Utes.
