West Virginia's baseball postseason hopes are alive and well, and they are one step closer to being able to predict where they'll travel for NCAA Regional play.

The NCAA Division 1 Baseball Committee announced Sunday the sixteen top-seeded teams which will host regional play during the 2024 NCAA Division 1 Baseball Championship this upcoming week. West Virginia, as expected, was not amongst the host sites. The host sites, alongside the program hosting each regional and their final record, are listed below.

  • Athens, Georgia – Georgia (39-15)
  • Chapel Hill, North Carolina – North Carolina (42-13)
  • Charlottesville, Virginia – Virginia (41-15)
  • Clemson, South Carolina – Clemson (41-14)
  • Bryan-College Station, Texas – Texas A&M (44-13)
  • Corvallis, Oregon – Oregon State (42-14)
  • Fayetteville, Arkansas – Arkansas (43-14)
  • Greenville, North Carolina – East Carolina (43-15)
  • Knoxville, Tennessee – Tennessee (50-11) 
  • Lexington, Kentucky – Kentucky (40-14) 
  • Norman, Oklahoma – Oklahoma (37-19)

  • Stillwater, Oklahoma – Oklahoma State (40-17) 
  • Tallahassee, Florida – Florida State (42-15)
  • Tucson, Arizona – Arizona (36-21)

Also on Sunday, collegiate baseball media outlet D1Baseball released their final tournament projection, which still saw WVU projected as a No. 2-seed in regional play despite a disappointing 0-2 performance at the Big 12 Championship that saw them as the first team to bow out of the double-elimination bracket.

The Mountaineers are projected to play in the Charlottesville Region hosted by Virginia, who the publication estimates as the 12th-overall No. 1-seed. The other teams projected for the region are Oregon and VCU. Other recent projections have also put WVU as a No. 2-seed in the Lexington Region hosted by Kentucky, who did also secure a Top 16 seed in the postseason tournament.

The full 64-team tournament field and bracket will be released at Noon on Monday, May 27th, with the reveal set to be broadcast on ESPN2.
