The Western Athletic Conference announced the bracket for the 2023 University Credit Union WAC Baseball Tournament. Utah Valley will be the No. 3 seed and will meet No. 4 Seattle U on Wednesday, May 24, at 10:00 a.m. MT/9:00 a.m. MST.

“First and foremost, we are excited to advance to the postseason and to earn the bye as a 3-seed. Anything can happen in postseason baseball, and we are excited to go play the best baseball we can in Mesa at the WAC Tournament,” said UVU head coach¬†Eddie Smith.

It will mark the third time UVU has been the No. 3 seed. In 2014, the Wolverines advanced to the Championship, where they dropped both games to Sacramento State. In 2016, they returned to the Championship, where they beat No. 1 seeded Seattle U 4-0 to advance to the team’s only NCAA Tournament.

Grand Canyon won the regular season and will be the No. 1 seed, followed by No. 2 seed Sam Houston. Seattle U is the No. 4 seed. Abilene Christian, UT Arlington, UTRGV, and California Baptist are the five through eight seeds.

The 2023 Tournament will return to Hohokam Stadium for the eighth consecutive year. The defending champion New Mexico State did not qualify.

All games will be streamed on ESPN+ in the United States and on WAC International outside the United States. GoUVU.com will have an audio-only stream of UVU games.
