PRINT VERSIONFILED IN: Baseball, College Baseball TAGGED: , ,

ESPN’s record-setting coverage of the 2013 college baseball season – more than 270 regular-season and conference tournament games, and all possible 153 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship contests for the first time – will continue with the Super Regionals Friday, June 7 to Monday, June 10.

ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise every game of the eight best-of-three Super Regionals (up to 24 games). Each Super Regional winner will advance to the College World Series. For the 11th straight year, ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise the entire College World Series (up to 17 games), including the best-of-three College World Series Finals.

This year’s schedule of up to 153 Championship games across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 surpasses the previous high of a possible 83 scheduled contests last year. The additional games come from coverage of all 16 Regional sites, an increase over six sites in 2012, four in 2011 and two each of the previous six years.
