Where do you stand with the potential change? 64 Teams: First Round: 32 hosts (three-game series) Second Round: 16 hosts (three-game series) Third Round: 8 hosts (three-game series) Omaha. Yes or No?
It’s just fine the way it is.... they have bigger and better things to fix than the format. If you want to get more “Teams in the Postseason go from 64 to 96. Just add 2 more teams per regional. I don’t think you will hit the pitching staffs as hard this way. Going to 16- 6 teams regionals Vs the current 16- 4 team regional like we used to when we only had 48 team make the field. We used to only have 8 six team regionals. With no Super Regionals. Kinda need to compensate for the amount of D1 Baseball programs we have now vs when they made the changes. I don’t think people realize we now have close to 300 D1 college baseball program now.

Would be interested to hear more info b4 deciding, but my initial thought is yes. Would give the mid majors that probably wouldn't host under format now (and be sent to far for most fans other than diehards to travel) a chance to see them host in playoffs. I think thats important in growing the game.
Would need to hear though how they'd be lined up in round 1. 1 plays 64, 2 out of 3? Or would they try to keep some sort of regional team coming in (that just happens to be lower ranked). I don't know, but I'm intrigued.
I understand where they're coming from, but I find the Regional format to be really exciting.
