Diamond Dogs To Host Clemson In NCAA Super Regional
STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State’s baseball team learned late Monday evening that the Diamond Dogs will host Clemson in NCAA Super Regional action this weekend at Dudy Noble Field/Polk-DeMent Stadium. The three-game series will be played this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 8-10), with game times to be set Tuesday. The Super Regional is one of eight that will be held around the country to decide the teams which will advance to the 2007 NCAA College World Series in Omaha, Neb., June 15-24.
MSU will be hosting an NCAA Super Regional for the first time since the NCAA adopted the current national championship structure in 1999. It is the third Super Regional State has advanced to since that time (2000-Clemson, S.C.; 2001-Fullerton, Calif.). Overall, the Bulldogs are making their fifth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in 2007 – the 11th in the past 12 seasons and their 24th since the NCAA adopted its regional tournament format in the mid-1970s.
Full tournament ticket booklets for the Super Regional are $22 for reserve chairbacks and $15 for general admission seats. Tickets will be available beginning at 8:30 a.m. CT Tuesday, June 5. Fans can order tickets by calling the MSU Athletic Ticket Office at 1-888-GO-DAWGS (463-2947) or can order them online at www.mstateathletics.com (also beginning at 8:30 a.m., Tuesday). Current reserved chairback seat holders will have until 5 p.m. CT, Wednesday, June 6, to reserve their seats for the Super Regional. After that time, all seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Any order for chairback tickets that cannot be accommodated will be assigned general admission tickets and will be refunded the difference in the ticket price.
