Baseball Earns Regional Bid, Faces UNC Pembroke on Thursday


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The NCAA announced its 56-team field for the 2016 Division II Baseball Tournament on Sunday night and Catawba earned an at-large bid into the Southeast Regional.  The Catawba Indians are seeded fifth in the seven-team regional.  The top seed and host for the regional is Mount Olive.

Catawba (37-15) will take on UNC Pembroke (40-15) in its opening game on Thursday at 7 pm.  The teams met earlier this year at Catawba with the Indians taking a 15-11 win in a game shortened by rain in the seventh inning.

Other opening day games will have second-seeded North Georgia (42-10) against seventh-seeded Lincoln Memorial (33-17) and third-seeded USC Aiken (39-13) against sixth-seeded Georgia College (35-13).  Mount Olive (47-8) will have a bye on opening day.

The seven-team regional will last five days with the championship being held on Monday, May 22.  The first three days will feature three games per day with two games on Sunday and the Championship on Monday. 

Admission prices will be $10 per day.  All-session tickets will be available for $35.  All seating is general admission.
