HAMMOND, La. – For the second consecutive season, the Southeastern Louisiana baseball program has earned an at-large bid into the NCAA postseason and will face the Rice Owls at 7 p.m. Friday in the first round at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

 

Southeastern (36-20) earns the highest seed in program history and will be the No. 2 seed in the Baton Rouge Regional, facing No. 3-seeded Rice (30-28) in the opening round. The Regional also includes top-seeded LSU (43-17), the No. 4 national seed, and No. 4-seeded Texas Southern (20-32).

 

It is the program’s fifth appearance in the NCAA Division I tournament and third in the past four seasons. The Lions also earned Regional bids in 1992 and 1994.
