With seven weeks in the books and seven more to play before most conferences tournaments begin, we’ve reached the rough halfway point of the college baseball season, which means it’s time to roll out our midseason field of 64 projection. This field was composed by D1Baseball national writers Aaron Fitt, Kendall Rogers and Mark Etheridge in a Tuesday night teleconference that we recorded and posted as a two-part podcast, so you can hear our deliberations about national seeds and hosts, as well as the race for at-large spots.

It should be no surprise that preseason No. 1 Florida earns the No. 1 national seed in our projection, as the Gators have lived up to their lofty billing in the first half. Miami is a clear-cut No. 2 national seed, but after that the debate got interesting. Six of our eight national seeds hail from the SEC and ACC (two conferences that account for each of the top eight spots in the RPI rankings). The SEC and ACC also earn five total regional hosts apiece, followed by the Big 12 (two), and the Pac-12, Big West, Conference USA and WCC with one apiece.

The SEC has the most projected regional teams (nine), followed by the ACC (eight), Pac-12 (five), Big 12 (four), and the American, Big Ten, Big West and Conference USA (three apiece).
