Another prediction by head coach Randy Mazey has come true: WVU baseball is indeed among the top 16 teams in college baseball, as confirmed by the NCAA selection committee Monday. 

The Mountaineers are the No. 15 national seed in the 2019 NCAA Championship, making them the No. 1 seed in the Morgantown Regional. They are joined in the bracket by two-seed Texas A&M, three-seed Duke and four-seed Fordham.

WVU will open the regional Friday at 8 ET against Fordham, while Texas A&M & Duke will meet at 4 p.m. Both games will air on ESPN3.

Texas A&M was also in the running to be a regional host entering its conference tournament. The Aggies have now reached the national tournament in each of the last 13 seasons, advancing to the College World Series in 2017. 

The winner of the double elimination-style competition, which will run from Friday until Monday, will advance to a Super Regional to take on the winner of the Nashville Regional. That competition is hosted by Vanderbilt and includes Indiana State, McNeese and Ohio State. 

If the Mountaineers win their regional and Vanderbilt — the No. 2 national seed — fails to advance, WVU would host the best-of-three Super Regional for a spot in the College World Series in Omaha. 

Five Big 12 teams made the national tournament. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State will also host regionals, while Baylor and TCU received at-large bids. 

Tickets are already on sale for the Morgantown Regional. WVU hasn’t hosted an NCAA Regional since 1955.
