NAIA Announces 10 Opening Round Sites

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced on Monday the group of hosts for the 2022 NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Rounds.

Selections of each site were made in part by the NAIA Baseball National Championship Selection Committee. The committee is comprised of head coaches and administrators from around the nation. Selections take into account geography, facilities and host qualification. The application deadline was on April 1, 2022.

This marks the first season with 10 Opening Round sites. There will be six sites where five teams compete; the remaining four locations will have four teams sent. Play will be from May 16-19 and the format will be double elimination. The field of 46-qualifiers for the Opening Round will result in the 10 winners advancing to the Avista NAIA Baseball World Series in Lewiston, Idaho, beginning on May 27, 2022.
