The 2022 College Baseball World Series gets going this weekend with 16 regionals. The Statesboro Region features the top-seeded Georgia Southern, who finished 40-18 on the season. The Eagles lost to Louisiana in the Sun Belt Championship game 7-6 last weekend.
Despite being the No. 1 seed, the Eagles aren’t the favorite to come out of the region. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are expected to advance as the 2-seed. John Michael Bertrand leads the Irish with eight wins, a 2.39 ERA and 94 strikeouts this season.
The winner of the Statesboro Regional will face off in the Super Regional round next weekend on the home field of the higher-seeded team. That will be a best-of-three format for a ticket to Omaha and the 2022 College World Series.
