Dating back to 2011 and forecasting through 2019, the Conference USA Baseball tournament will have been played in the state of Mississippi eight out of those nine years. The next three have dibs on Biloxi. For the first time in the history of the event, MGM Park is serving as the host site in 2017, taking over for Pete Taylor Park after a three year run in Hattiesburg. Two years before that, the eight team double elimination field was played at Trustmark Park in Pearl, the last neutral site of the tournament prior to MGM Park. Despite having the home state advantage in five out of the last six years, Southern Miss only took advantage of that once in 2016. This year, the Golden Eagles will be looking to repeat as tournament champions for the first time ever, but it’s not always that simple. Conference USA Assistant Commissioner Russ Anderson said, “Well, certainly with the great season that Southern Miss is having is going to help boost ticket sales even further, create more interest in the event, but at the same time this is a great baseball league that is very deep, so we're going to see outstanding baseball and we may even some surprises here this week. Last year we had that great championship game. Two years ago we had the No. 8 seed win the tournament, so you never know what's going to happen on Championship Sunday.” Tournament play will get rolling at 9 a.m. tomorrow with game one between six seed Rice and three seed Florida Atlantic.   [READ MORE]
