TICKET INFORMATION

NC State has been named one of 16 regional hosts for the 2013 NCAA Baseball Championship for the second year in a row, and fourth time under head coach Elliott Avent.

All four of the Wolfpack’s hosting opportunities (2003, 2008, 2012, and 2013) have come under Avent, who guided State to the second-most regular season wins in program history (42) during the 2013 regular season. The Pack came within one game of the ACC’s Atlantic Division title, and within one win of the ACC Tournament championship game, en route to its 44-14 record.

The ACC received the most regional host bids with five (Florida State, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia, and Virginia Tech). The SEC received four, the Pac-12 earned three, and the Big East, Big 12, Big Ten, and Big West each secured one.

NC State awaits the NCAA Selection Show, which will unveil the rest of the bracket and national seeding, Monday at noon on ESPNU. The Wolfpack is seeking its first national seeding in program history.
