The Pepperdine baseball team will head to Fort Worth, Texas, to take on TCU in NCAA Super Regional action this weekend. This is the first NCAA Super Regional appearance for the Waves since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1999.
The Waves and the Horned Frogs will face off in a best-of-three series for a spot in the College World Series. The first game will be at 1 p.m. (PT) on Saturday, Jun. 7, with the second game on Sunday, Jun. 8, at 3 p.m. (PT) and the "if necessary" game on Monday, Jun. 9, at 4 p.m. (PT). All games of the NCAA Super Regional will be broadcast live on ESPNU with Adam Amin and Keith Moreland on the call.
The Waves won the San Luis Obispo Regional to advance to the Super Regional, going 3-0 in the first round tournament. The Waves had to beat Arizona State to open the tournament and then take down regional host and top-seed Cal Poly twice to advance. Pepperdine earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament after winning the WCC Tournament the week before. The Waves have now won six straight postseason games coming into Super Regional play this weekend.
The Waves' regular-season WCC Championship this year was the program's 17th regular-season title and second in the past three years after winning the 2012 title. Pepperdine also grabbed the conference tournament title, going 3-0 in Stockton, California, to lock up the WCC's automatic bid. It was just the second year the WCC has used the four-team format and the first time the Waves have won it.
The Waves have now made 28 appearances in NCAA postseason play. Pepperdine won a College World Series title in 1992 and has appeared in the College World Series twice ('79, '92).
