ACC baseball has reached the final weekend of the regular season, and stakes are high for the seven league series slated Thursday through Saturday. Notre Dame holds a slight lead atop the Atlantic Division, but Louisville, Florida State and NC State remain in mathematical contention. The picture is similar in the Coastal Division, where Miami sits just ahead of Virginia Tech, with Virginia remaining in the hunt as well. Interestingly, the closing weekend schedule includes a matchup of the current division leaders, as Miami welcomes Notre Dame to Coral Gables.
• The division winners will be the top two seeds for the 2022 ACC Baseball Championship, which is set for Tuesday, May 24 through Sunday, May 29 at Truist Field in Charlotte, North Carolina. Eight teams have clinched spots in the 12-team field, with the remaining four tournament berths to be determined this weekend. Tournament seedings will be announced Saturday evening (May 21), and the complete tournament bracket with game times and daily matchups will be unveiled late Sunday morning.
