College Baseball Ticket Information
College baseball fans get the luxury of having one of the most affordable tickets in the NCAA. For most regular season games getting a seat below $50 is not-uncommon, in fact it’s more of a standard. While signature matchups could potentially drive demand up, it’s not likely to miss out on a college baseball game due to a lack of available tickets. As the regular season begins to wind down and conference tournaments start, the average ticket price may see a bump but still remain on the lower end of ticket prices in college sports.
Coming off of their first national championship in program history, the Florida Gators start the 2018 season ranked No. 1 in the country, and will look to be the first repeat champion since the South Carolina Gamecocks did it in 2010 and 2011. In fact, the last five national champions have been first-time winners and have announced themselves as annual contenders. Before Florida, it was UCLA (2013), Vanderbilt (2014), Virginia (2015) and Coastal Carolina (2016).
Along with the Gators, the rest of the 2017 College World Series field - Oregon State (No. 2), Florida State (No. 5), TCU (No. 7), Texas A&M (No. 10), Louisville (No. 14), Cal State Fullerton (No. 22) and LSU (No. 23) - begins this season in the top 25. Other teams that will likely be in the hunt include No. 3 Texas Tech, No. 4 Arkansas, No. 6 North Carolina, No. 8 Kentucky and No. 9 Ole Miss, while Southern Miss (No. 15), Dallas Baptist (No. 16) and South Alabama (No. 18) are among the lesser-known schools that could shock the world like Coastal Carolina did in 2016.
The 2018 NCAA Division I Tournament begins on Friday, June 1. The College World Series, which will take place at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska, will begin on Saturday, June 16 and conclude on Thursday, June 28.
