If you’re a Purdue alum and you live in North Carolina you’re in luck! Purdue baseball is coming your way, and we need to have a very loud and boisterous backing as we face Houston, North Carolina A&T, and the host Tar Heels. When Purdue played in the 2012 tournament in Gary there were great crowds, and we closed this season by winning 13 straight at Alexander Field. This team definitely responds to a good crowd, so come on out and support them. First, here is your ticket info:

Many times the host teams like to play the prime time second game on the opening night, but North Carolina has opted to play game 1 at 2pm. That means our game against Houston on Friday will be the night game.

Now more on what everyone is saying:
In a season full of memorable moments, seeing #Purdue's NCAA Regional draw announced live on ESPNU still ranks very high among those moments. Coach Waz, Tanner Andrews & Alec Olund describe how it felt to officially be Regional bound. #BoilerUp pic.twitter.com/wU3gCNRM6P— Purdue Baseball (@PurdueBaseball) May 29, 2018
Two years ago my then pregnant wife and I moved 2000 miles to take a job with Purdue Baseball. Everyone told us the players weren’t any good, they only won 10 games etc..... Well these are those same guys finding out they EARNED a 2 seed in a NCAA Regional. pic.twitter.com/IHVtNroN4D— Steve Holm (@Steve_Holm20) May 29, 2018
How about @PurdueBaseball getting the 2, as expected, in Chapel Hill? Mark Wasikowski and his staff did an amazing job this year. He’s in the mix for National Coach of the Year.— Kendall Rogers (@KendallRogers) May 28, 2018
