STARKVILLE, Miss. (MSU Athletics/WTVA) - The inaugural season at the New Dude will feature postseason baseball.

The Mississippi State baseball program will host an NCAA Regional for the 14th time in program history, as the NCAA has tabbed Mississippi State as one of 16 regional hosts for the 2019 NCAA Baseball Championship, the selection committee announced Sunday (May 26).

The four-team regional is set to begin Friday, May 31, with a pair of opening round games. Saturday (June 1) and Sunday (June 2) will also feature two games each, with an if-necessary game to be played on Monday, June 3.

The 2019 NCAA Regional marks the 14th NCAA Regional hosted in Starkville and the first since 2016.
