Leading the way is the Southeastern Conference (SEC) with a record-breaking 11 schools picked from the league. Next up comes the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), who has eight teams featured in the tournament. After that comes the Big 12 with six, Sun Belt with four, and both the Big Ten and Pac-12 with three. Coming in with two is the American Athletic, Big East, Big West, Conference USA and Missouri Valley leagues

I always enjoy this time of the year when the NCAA baseball tournament rolls around, and it’s also something that annually makes me think about the old college baseball video games.

Damn, I miss those days.

Man, it makes me want to get a PlayStation 2 just to buy the old games and play them, or better yet … y’all know what to do, Sony.

Bring back MVP 06: NCAA Baseball and MVP 07: NCAA Baseball! The glory would be out of this world!
