Bama baseball fails to make NCAA Tournament
By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Drew Pavan
Even with their late season success in the SEC tournament Alabama baseball has failed to get a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
The Tide was “on the bubble” going into the NCAA baseball selection show. Many predicted the Tide to be one of it’s first four teams out.
Crimson Tide ended the season with a 31-27 (12-17 SEC) record, winning two games against No.6 Georgia and No.3 Arkansas in the SEC tournament before falling in back to back games to Texas A&M and Florida to end their run in Hoover.
Alabama made the NCAA Regionals last year for the first time since 2014, losing as a No. 3 seed to NC State and Louisiana Tech.
Outfielder Caden Rose was named to the All-SEC tournament team. In four games in Hoover, Rose batted .438 reaching base 10 times and scored six times for the week.
Since the selection show two players have entered their names in the transfer portal, infielder Davis Heller and outfielder Owen Diodati.
