NCAA D2 Baseball – Regional Tourney Day 1 Recap

NCAA Baseball Logo

Thursday was the opening day of play in the NCAA Division 2 College Baseball Regional Tournaments.  There are 48 teams competing in 8 regional double elimination tournaments to decide the 8 teams advancing to the D2 College World Series.

It was a good day to be the underdog as the lower seeded teams won 12 times and the higher seeded only 10 of their match-ups.  In the ultra-competitive South Region the #2, #3 & #4 seeds all lost.  Two of the #1 seeds lost their opening games – Dominican lost to Wilmington (10-1) in the East Region and South Carolina Aiken lost to Belmont Abbey (6-5).

Tune into a post I put up yesterday with links to the Regions to follow the action more closely with Live Stats, updated brackets and game recaps – D2 College Baseball Regional Tracking
