While Clark-LeClair Stadium will welcome its second NCAA postseason event, ECU has also hosted opening round regional tournaments on two occasions at different venues. The Pirates produced a 3-0 mark at Fleming Stadium during the Wilson Regional in 2001 before turning in a similar result at the Kinston Regional inside Grainger Stadium in 2004. Additionally, ECU used the Kinston facility when it hosted Tennessee for a Super Regional appearance in 2001.

For ECU (43-16), the selection marks the Pirates’ 29th overall appearance in NCAA postseason play. ECU has qualified for regional competition in 15 of the last 20 seasons and three times during head coach Cliff Godwin’s four-year tenure after traveling to the Coral Gables (Fla.) Regional in 2015 and the Charlottesville (Va.) Regional in 2016.
