LUBBOCK, Texas – For the third consecutive season, the No. 6 Texas Tech baseball team has been picked to host an NCAA Regional at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
The Red Raiders (39-17), who have spent the entire season ranked in the top 10 of both the nationally-voted on polls and the NCAA RPI rankings, are one of 16 regional hosts selected on Sunday night by the NCAA baseball selection committee. The three opponents for the 2018 Lubbock Regional, as well as the entire 64-team field will be announced on Monday, May 28, at 11 a.m. CDT on ESPNU. Game times and television coverage will also be determined on Monday afternoon.
It's the first time in school history Tech has hosted an NCAA Regional in three-straight years, and the sixth overall. The Red Raiders have played regional action in Lubbock in 1996, 1997, 1999, 2016 & 2017.
In observance of the Memorial Day holiday, the Texas Tech Athletics Ticket Office will be closed on Monday, May 28. Season ticket holders and Red Raider club members may request tickets online at TexasTech.com and have until Tuesday, May 29, at 5 p.m., to request all-session tickets to the regional.
Tech is offering only all-session passes at this time. If seats remain following the season ticket holder/Red Raider Club priority request period, all remaining all-session tickets will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, May 30, at 8:30 a.m.
Season ticket holders/Red Raider Club members who held reserved parking for the 2018 season are encouraged to hold on to those passes as they will be valid throughout the postseason. Tech will also offer complimentary parking in the commuter lots located near Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park similar to the regular season.
In addition, Tech has held 300 complimentary seats for students. Ticket pick-up instructions will be emailed to students on Tuesday. All students must show a valid Texas Tech I.D. in order to claim tickets.
