The NCAA announces its 16 host sites for baseball tournament regionals tonight at 9 p.m. on the NCAA web site (the full 64-team field is revealed Monday at noon on ESPNU).

The last few host sites, as always, will give the NCAA Selection Committee fits. But Kansas State might squeeze in for geographic reasons, and Clemson because of its No. 6 strength of schedule rating.

One final prediction ...

National seeds:

Vanderbilt

North Carolina

Virginia

Oregon State

LSU

Oregon

Cal State Fullerton

N.C. State

The other eight regional hosts:

Virginia Tech

Florida State

Mississippi State

South Carolina

Indiana

Louisville

Kansas State
