The 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Field of 64 is in the process of being announced and Kevin Gausman and his LSU Tigers are one of the eight national No. 1 seeds at No. 7. They will host, as a No. 1 regional seed, the Baton Rouge regional. As the bracket is revealed, check back to see who LSU has in its regional.
The eight No. 1 national seeds are:
1. Florida Gators
2. UCLA Bruins
3. Florida St. Seminoles
4. Baylor Bears
5. Oregon Ducks
6. North Carolina Tar Heels
7. LSU Tigers
8. South Carolina Gamecocks
Notes: South Carolina is the two-time-defending College World Series champions. Florida features Preston Tucker, a 2011 Colorado Rockies draft pick who elected to not sign with the team last summer.
The opening round is double-elimination, so no team is out until they take two losses. Once a regional is won by a team they advance to the Super Regionals. After that round, there is the College World Series in Omaha.
