It's about that time to find out when and where Arizona will begin postseason play

Jason Bartel

The Arizona Wildcats will find out their postseason fate on Monday morning while sitting in the Denver Airport on the way back to Tucson from Hawaii.

So like the rest of us, they will be watching the selection show on their TVs, computers or tablets. Here's how and when to watch:

Time:

9 AM PT

TV:

ESPNU

Streaming:

Watch ESPN or the ESPN app


Regional hosts will be announced at 5:30 PM PT Sunday evening on the College Baseball Twitter account.

UPDATE: Regional host sites have been announced


Arizona is expected to be a two-seed no matter where they end up. College baseball selects 16 Regional sites, with four teams travelling to each location. Regionals are double elimination, with the one-seeds starting the weekend against the four-seeds, while the two and three-seeds play each other. There are 31 automatic bids and 33 at-large bids to set the field of 64.

One team comes out of each Regional and advances to the Super Regional round, which is a three-game series. Hosts for the Super Regional will come from the eight national seeds. If one of them loses, then it becomes the higher seed remaining or whichever school in the matchup is capable of hosting three games that weekend.

The eight Super Regional winners advance to the College World Series. The CWS is essentially two four-team regionals, and the winner of those advance to the Championship Series, which is a best-of-three series like the Super Regionals.

Arizona could essentially end up anywhere to start their first postseason run since 2012. Many Regional hosts are expected to come from the SEC and ACC, so there's a good chance that they'll have to head to the South, just like softball did. And then there's also a chance that the Wildcats host. It could go either way.

As always, stick with us for the best Arizona baseball coverage as the postseason gets underway.
