Florida Southern advances

Max's baseball team, the Moccasins are headed to the NCAA South Regional. The NCAA announced its tournament selections Sunday night and the Moccasins are one of eight teams selected for the South Regional, which will be played May 14-18 at Magnolia, Arkansas, and how many of you know where that is? The Moccasins (38-14) are seeded sixth and will play third-seeded West Alabama in their first game.

Max will be pitching Game 1, Thursday at 4:30PM EST, and you'll be able to follow it on LiveStats at: or possibly there might be an audio broadcast at: which broadcasts the West Alabama games during the regular season and claim they will be doing doesn't always happen....Since I'll be teaching at NYU, I can't make it, but Marla is going, that lucky girl!!!

They have never met West Alabama in baseball. The championship provides for eight regional sites - six sites will host six teams, the West region will host four teams and the South region will host eight teams. All regionals are double-elimination tournaments. Regional champions will advance to the double-elimination championship finals May 23-30 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina. The finals will be hosted by Mount Olive College and the town of Cary, North Carolina. And if they get that far...I will definitely make it to those games. Pretty cool....
