INDIANAPOLIS – Tennessee’s Lindsey Nelson Stadium was among the 20 sites announced by the NCAA on Friday that have been approved to host NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals for baseball this season.

The 16 regional sites will come from the 20 approved locations announced on Friday and will be revealed on Sunday, May 30 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The full release from the NCAA and complete list of the 20 approved sites can be seen HERE.

Entering this weekend’s series against No. 1 Arkansas, the Vols are ranked as high as No. 4 in the national polls and are No. 8 in the latest RPI rankings. The Big Orange are also tied with the Razorbacks for first in the SEC.

Should Tennessee be selected to host a regional, it would be its first time hosting one since 2005. The Vols went on to win that regional and advance all the way to the College World Series, which was their last trip to Omaha.
