Advocate staff photo by HILARY SCHEINUK -- The sun is shining as LSU takes batting practice before Game 7 of the 2016 NCAA Baton Rouge Regional between LSU and Rice, Tuesday, June 7, 2016, at LSU's Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field in Baton Rouge, La.

LSU got the NCAA regional everyone expected Sunday night. On Monday, we found out who's coming to the party.

The NCAA announced the 16 regional hosts sites for this year’s tournament, with LSU’s Alex Box Stadium once again making the list. The three other teams coming to Baton Rouge and the eight national seeds were revealed during the NCAA tournament selection show, set for 11 a.m. Monday on ESPN2.

This will be the 25th time LSU hosts an NCAA regional since 1986 and the Tigers’ 29th NCAA tournament appearance overall. LSU has advanced out of a regional to the College World Series or a super regional (since 1999) 22 times.

Regionals begin Friday.
