The University of Southern Maine baseball team got bounced from its Little East Conference Tournament late last week but the NCAA has picked the Huskies as an at-large team in the national field of 58 teams.

Coach Ed Flaherty's Huskies are 27-13 and headed to the New York regional at State University of New York-Cortland. USM will be a #3 seed in the eight team field. The opening round opponent will be #6 Amherst at 4:30pm on Thursday.

The Huskies have played in a NCAA regional in seven of the last 10 seasons and have made it to the D-III College World Series in two of those seasons.
