Maryland Baseball to Host NCAA Regional Tournament

By Maryland Athletics Staff

The Maryland baseball team earned the No. 15 seed in the 2022 NCAA Baseball Championship and will serve as the top seed this week in the first College Park regional tournament.

The Terps will host No. 2 seed Wake Forest, No. 3 UConn and No. 4 Long Island University at Bob "Turtle" Smith Stadium starting Friday. Maryland will take on LIU at 7 p.m. Friday, a game that will be televised on ESPN+. Wake Forest and UConn will open play in College Park at 1 p.m., with coverage on ESPNU.

The Terps (45-12) are making their second consecutive tournament appearance, fifth since 2014, and eighth in program history. Maryland previously captured regional titles in 2014 and 2015.

Fans will be able to purchase all-session general admission tickets for the College Park Regional, which includes a ticket to all potential games June 3-5. Terrapin Club members will have priority access to purchase tickets for Regionals beginning at 1 p.m. Monday, and they go on sale to the general public at 1 p.m. Tuesday. All-session tickets are priced at $30 for youth and seniors and $60 for adults. Should the Regional advance to June 6, tickets will be sold as single-session tickets beginning at 9 a.m. that day.

Single-session Regional tickets will go on sale at 5 p.m. Tuesday and cost $5 for students of the participating schools, $8 for youth and seniors, and $12 for adults.

The Terps enjoyed their best regular season in school history, winning a program-record 44 games along with their first Big Ten regular season championship. It was the program's first conference title of any kind in 51 years. At Bob "Turtle" Smith Stadium, the Terps are 24-2, their most home wins in school history.

Maryland boasts 10 All-Big Ten selections, including Big Ten Player of the Year Chris Alleyne. Head Coach Rob Vaughn was named Big Ten Coach of the Year.
