2011 NCAA Baseball College World Series Selection Show: Cal, Stanford, San Francisco Rewarded For Strong Seasons

The 2011 NCAA Baseball College World Series Selection Show is complete and the California Golden Bears, Stanford Cardinal, and San Francisco Dons have all been rewarded for strong seasons. Three Bay Area universities have been selected to take part in the postseason baseball tournament starting June 3. San Francisco won the WCC tournament to secure an automatic bid. However, the Pac-10 is one of the few conferences without a conference tournament so neither team could guarantee an automatic bid heading into the postseason.

San Francisco was placed in the Los Angeles regional where they could potentially face host UCLA, UC Irvine, and Fresno State. San Francisco, at 31-23, is the four seed in the region. The Dons will face UCLA in their first game on Friday June 3. Their subsequent opponents will depend on wins and losses, but will take place on June 4.

California was placed in the Houston regional. They could potentially face host-team Rice, Baylor, or Alcorn State. The 31-20 Bears are the three seed in the region. The Bears open against Baylor on Friday June 3, with their second game taking place on June 4.

Stanford was placed in the Fullerton regional. They could potentially face host-team Cal State-Fullerton, Kansas State, and Illinois. The 32-20 Cardinal are the two seed in the region. The Cardinal will face Kansas State to open play and the game will be featured on ESPNU, which likely means it will also be available on ESPN3.com. The entire Fullerton regional will be broadcast on the ESPN family of channels.
