Advance tickets at discount prices are now available for the 2016 NCAA Division II Baseball National Finals, co-hosted by University of Mount Olive and Town of Cary. The National Finals take place May 28-June 4 at USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C. Advance tickets are available through May 15.

Champions of the eight regionals will converge on Cary to crown a national champion. Mount Olive won the 2008 National Championship in Sauget, Ill., the year before the National Finals moved to Cary. The Trojans reached the National Finals again in 2011 and finished in a tie for third.

Since USA Baseball National Training Complex has hosted the National Finals, a first-time national champion had been crowned each year until Tampa (Fla.) ended the streak in 2013. Last year, Tampa became the second school to win two national championships in Cary, defeating Colorado Mesa.

2009: Lynn (Fla.)
2010: Southern Indiana
2011: West Florida
2012: West Chester (Pa.)
2013: Tampa (Fla.)
2014: Southern Indiana
2015: Tampa (Fla.) 

This year's tournament will follow a true double-elimination format. If both finalists are unbeaten after bracket play, they will face each other in a two-out-of-three series on the final two days. If only one finalist is unbeaten, the one-loss finalist will have to beat the unbeaten team twice to claim the championship. Game times each day are 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
