The NCAA has tabbed the Cats as the 12th overall seed in the NCAA Tournament after an impressive regular season. After finding out this weekend that they will be one of the 8 SEC teams (a conference record) to become 'host schools' out of the 16 in total chosen, they now know who will be making the trip to Lexington for the weekend's event.
The games will take place from June 2-5th, with Ball State, Indiana, and West Virginia rounding out the four participants in the Lexington Regional. Below is the official schedule.

I'd say if you haven't yet made it out to Kentucky Proud Park, you've been missing out. But, no worries, this would be great time to go experience a UK Baseball game and potentially catch a tournament win! They need our support and with the home field advantage, they could win this thing out. Tickets aren't very expensive and they sell beer! Gather some of the guys and girls and go plant your butts inside a seat at the stadium. You won't regret it.
