Gator Baseball Starts Play In NCAA Regionals

By on June 1st, 2012

The University of Florida baseball team tries for its third straight trip to the College World Series as it begins play today in an NCAA Regional being hosted by the Gators.

At 1pm, two seed Georgia Tech faces three seed College of Charleston while at 7pm top seed and overall number one national seed Florida faces four seed Bethune Cookman.   You can hear the game live at 6:50pm on Country 103-7 The Gator.

The Gators will start Jonathan Crawford on the mound tonight as it looks like Florida will save ace Hudson Randall for the next game if the Gators can get past the one tonight.   Bethune Cookman counters with a senior in Rayan Gonzalez who has won nine games this year.

The winner of this regional will move on to Super Regional play next weekend and if it is Florida, the Gators will be the host team.

Eight SEC teams have made regionals with three teams receiving top eight national seeds in Florida, LSU and South Carolina.

In the opening game, Georgia Tech comes in hot.   Despite a sub .500 record in ACC play, the Yellow Jackets got the final berth in the ACC Tournment and ended up winning the whole thing.

College of Charleston is in the Southern Conference and won 37 games this past season with a team that features some power and home run capability.
