Since 2001, this prestigious event has hosted 29 different NCAA Division-I baseball programs.
The invite only tournament once again boasts a strong lineup in 2017, featuring a Big 12 Conference versus Southeastern Conference format as Baylor, TCU and Texas Tech compete against LSU, Ole Miss and Texas A&M.
