CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The NCAA announced today that Charlottesville, Va., has been selected as one of eight Super Regional host sites for the 2010 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.

All three games also will be televised on the ESPN family of networks. The Saturday game will be broadcast on ESPNU, the Sunday contest on ESPN and the Monday game on ESPN2 (if necessary).
