It’s time for college baseball fans’ annual pilgrimage to middle America – Omaha, Nebraska, to be exact – for the 2019 College World Series.
After an unpredictable run of regional and super regional games, the field of 64 has been narrowed down to the final eight teams, which will compete in a double elimination tournament over the next week and a half.
The field is comprised of four SEC teams (Mississippi State, Arkansas, Auburn, Vanderbilt) and five national seeds, but the unpredictable nature of the CWS – five of the last seven winners have not been among the top eight national seeds – means that it is really anyone’s tournament to win. Even Florida State and Michigan, which were No. 3 seeds in their regionals, could be dogpiling by the end of the month.
The action gets underway with a pair of games on Saturday. Below is information for how to watch them, as well as a full slate of games for the entire CWS.
