Regional play begins Friday at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field in Coral Gables.

The 'Canes are one of a record-six Atlantic Coast Conference schools selected to host a regional this season, joining Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina State, Louisville and Virginia.

The field of 64 teams will be announced Monday at noon.
