The NCAA Division 2 Central Region college baseball Tournament beings on Thursday in Grand Junction, CO. 

There are 3 teams each from the Northern Sun Conference and the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.  Although Mesa State is the #1 seed, they are coming into the Tournament playing their worst baseball of the season.  They have lost 8 of their most recent 13 games and lost both of their games this past weekend at the RMAC Tourney.  Minnesota State and Wayne State from the Northern Sun Conference may be the favorites to win the double elimination NCAA Central Region, the winner of which goes on to the NCAA Division 2 College World Series in Cary, NC.
