2011 ncaa baseball tournament

The City Has Two Teams in the NCAA Baseball Tournament

Perhaps you've already done a first draft of your NCAA Baseball Tournament bracket — your office is having a pool, yes? — but if not, we'll note that just like during the NCAA's basketball tournament in March, the city proper will be represented by two schools in this year's baseball tourney. Manhattan College, champions of the MAAC conference, are the fourth seed in the four-team Gainesville Regional, and will open against Florida on Friday at 4 p.m. Meanwhile, St. John's — last year's Big East champion — was upset by Seton Hall in this year's conference title game on Sunday but still earned a spot in the field of 64. They're the No. 3 seed in the Charlottesville Region — the one topped by No. 1 overall seed Virginia — and open up the double-elimination regionals against East Carolina on Friday at 6 p.m.
