The full NCAA baseball tournament field was revealed Monday afternoon, and NC State learned which teams it'll be welcoming to Raleigh. Coastal Carolina is the two-seed in this regional, and will be a formidable obstacle. Saint Mary's, which is making its first-ever tournament appearance, is the the three-seed, and Navy is the four. The Pack will open with Navy on Friday night.

The ACC got a record 10 teams into the tournament. Duke, Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest each snuck in to the field despite iffy records. North Carolina did not. (Heh.)
As you can see in that there screen shot, NC State is paired with the Baton Rouge Regional, so if the Wolfpack advances it will face the winner of that regional in the super regional round. The Pack would need somebody to topple LSU in order to host the super regional. In 2013, Rice pulled an upset that allowed the Pack to host in the supers, so hey, maybe history will repeat itself.
