The No. 13 ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons will host a regional in Winston-Salem this weekend (June 2nd-4th).
The four teams who will play in Winston this weekend are:
- Wake Forest (39-18)
- West Virginia (34-24)
- Maryland (37-21)
- UMBC (23-23)
As a refresher on how the college baseball postseason works, there are 16 regional hosts with 4 teams a piece playing in a double elimination tournament format.
The 16 teams that win the Regionals then play in the Super Regionals in a best of 3 series the following weekend.
Those 8 winners advance to Omaha for the official College World Series, which is another double-elimination format to determine the final two teams. The two teams then play a best-of-3 series to determine the National Champion.
