NCAA baseball regionals: UGA heads west, young men

The Georgia baseball team did indeed make the NCAA tournament, but it was apparently a close call, and it will rack up some mileage getting there.

The Bulldogs are headed for the Oregon State regional, in Corvallis, Ore. They were selected as a No. 3 seed, indicating they were one of the last at-large selections to the field.

Georgia's first-round opponent in the four-team, double-elimination regional is second-seeded Creighton.

The NCAA selection committee could have kept Georgia closer to home, with regionals at Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State or even North Carolina and Virginia. Instead, the Bulldogs head to the west coast, and not alone in that fate: Arkansas, another at-large selection out of the SEC, is headed to Arizona State.

But if you go by the RPI, Georgia got a pretty good draw: It's ranked ahead of Oregon State and Creighton in those rankings, according to Boydsworld.com. (Georgia 17, Creighton 29, Oregon State 31.)
