SEC Baseball Tournament Bracket Announced
The 2007 SEC Baseball Tournament is set to begin Wednesday morning at Regions Park (formerly the Hoover Met) in Hoover, AL with the 7th seeded Alabama Crimson Tide and 2nd seeded Arkansas Razorbacks playing in Game 1 at 10 AM. Alabama took two of three from Arkansas two weeks ago in Tuscaloosa and will probably face Roger Clemens Award nominee Nick Schmidt in game one. Alabama defeated Schmidt two weeks ago when he only lasted 3 plus innings making it his shortest outing of the year and giving him his first loss of the season. While Arkansas did earn the 2nd seed they have struggled down the stretch losing their last three SEC series to LSU, Alabama, and Ole Miss.
Alabama's game will be followed by 6th seeded Florida taking on 3rd seed South Carolina. Vanderbilt earned the league's top seed and will play in the third game on Wednesday against rival and 8th seeded Tennessee, who clinched a tournament berth on the last day of the season with a win over Florida. In the night cap, 4th seeded Mississippi State will meet rival and 5th seeded Ole Miss in the last game of the day.
Auburn, Georgia, LSU, and Kentucky were the four SEC teams that did not make the eight team field. It was the first time in 22 years that LSU failed to make the SEC Tournament.
