This past Sunday the host sites for the NCAA baseball tournament were released. Monday the remainder of the field was revealed.
The Clemson Tigers having to return to Columbia to potentially take on the host, and arch-rival USC, was the big story line for the regional being played in the Capital City.
That isn’t where the story lines cease though, as current Liberty Flames head coach Jim Toman will be making a return to Columbia as well for postseason play. Tuesday afternoon, Toman joined Korn and Bill Gunter on “SportsTalk First Edition” to discuss his Flames and this weekend’s regional.
Prior to taking the Flames job, Toman was Ray Tanner’s right-hand-man for 11 seasons in the dugout in Columbia. in 2002 he was named the top assistant in the country by Baseball America. His Flames are the 3-seed and will take on the 2-seed Clemson in the first round of the tournament on Friday. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00.
