Arsenal USA and The Hit Doctor Students Step Up to the Plate in the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship

Alumni 2024 NCAA Playoffs

The 2024 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament, marking the 77th edition of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship, will feature 64 teams. The tournament is set to begin on Friday, May 31, as part of the 2024 NCAA Division I baseball season. As the NCAA Baseball College Playoffs are officially here, a growing anticipation emerges among both players and fans. 

From the Arsenal and Hit Doctor program to the NCAA spotlight, our students are gearing up for the NCAA Baseball College Playoffs and ready to showcase their skills on the grand stage of collegiate baseball in their respective college teams. Since The Hit Doctor and The Arsenal Organization established an environment that supports and fosters the growth of the abilities required for young athletes to succeed in baseball and, more significantly, in life, this means these students are well-prepared for the challenges ahead. They’ve been trained to perform well under pressure, display sportsmanship, and demonstrate commitment both on and off the field.

Tournament Procedure

A total of 64 teams will enter the tournament. Thirty teams will receive an automatic bid by either winning their conference tournament or finishing in first place in their conference. The remaining 34 at-large bids will be awarded by the NCAA Selection Committee. Teams will be grouped into 16 regional brackets, each with four teams, after selection. There will be two rounds of elimination at the regionals. Each regional champion advances to a best-of-three series known as the Super Regionals. The College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, will see the eight winners of the Super Regionals advance to a double-elimination competition to decide the national champion. 


On May 27, 2024, the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee has already announced the 64 teams that will be competing for the 2024 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship
