Baylor Baseball, fresh off earning an automatic qualifying bid by winning the Big 12 Championship, anxiously awaited their placement during the NCAA Selection Show:
Thanks to the Bears late season efforts, Baylor was awarded a regional 2 seed. That’s the good news. The bad news is the Bears are the regional 2 seed in Stanford’s regional.

Stanford is this region’s 1 seed, Baylor is the 2 seed, Cal State Fullerton is the 3 seed, and Wright State is the 4 seed. Baylor will open up tournament play this Friday at 4:00 PM CT as they face off against 3 seed Cal State Fullerton:
