North Carolina A&T University Aggies baseball team is NCAA Regional bound. NC A&T, 32-23 overall and the HBCU Baseball Large School National Champion, was tabbed as the No. 4 seed in the Chapel Hill Regional and is set to compete against host No. 1 seed North Carolina, No. 2 seed Purdue, and No. 3 seed Houston.

The NCAA Division I tournament starts June 1st and runs through June 4th at Boshamer Stadium in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The Aggies were selected with 63 other teams as part of this year’s field. NC A&T will begin its 2018 NCAA postseason campaign against North Carolina, Friday June 1st at 2:00 p.m.

After finishing its 2018 season with the most wins (32) in programs history, NC A&T received a regional bid for the first time since 2005. Playing a tough non conference schedule against No. 7 North Carolina, No. 11 North Carolina State, and No. 28 South Carolina, the Aggies received votes in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Top 30 poll.

North Carolina A&T went undefeated in the MEAC Conference Championship and won the title for the first time in 13 years. They also claimed the MEAC Southern Division title setting a school record for wins and a school record for conference wins.

The four-team regional is a double-elimination tournament. The winner advances to the Super Regional. If the Aggies win that tournament, they go to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska to compete for a national title.
