Virginia hosts Mississippi State in NCAA Super Regional

uva logoThe Virginia baseball team will play host to Mississippi State Saturday through Monday (June 8-10) in the 2013 NCAA Charlottesville Super Regional at Davenport Field. The teams will play at 1 p.m. Saturday (June 8),7 p.m. Sunday (June 9) and 4 p.m. Monday (June 10), if necessary.

All three games in the best-of-three series will be televised on the ESPN family of networks. The Saturday and Mondaygames will air on ESPN2, while the Sunday contest will be broadcast on ESPNU. WINA 1070-AM will carry the local radio broadcast for all games of the super regional, while select stations along the Virginia Sports Radio Network also will have coverage.

The No. 6 national seed in the tournament field, Virginia (50-10) will serve as one of eight super regional host sites and will play host to a super regional for the third time, with each coming in the last four years (2010, 2011). This is Virginia’s fourth trip to a super regional (2009 as well); UVa joins Cal State Fullerton, Florida, Florida State and South Carolina as the only schools to play in at least four super regionals in the last five years.

Virginia also hosted super regionals in 2010 and 2011 and advanced this season after sweeping three games to capture the NCAA Charlottesville Regional championship. Mississippi State (46-18) won the NCAA Starkville Regional on Monday night to advance to the super regional. UVa and MSU will be meeting for the first time in baseball.

The winner of the super regional will advance to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. UVa has competed in two College World Series (2009, 2011), while Mississippi State has been to eight College World Series, with the last coming in 2007.
