Mount Olive College and Town of Cary have been selected to host the 2016, 2017 and 2018 NCAA Division II Baseball National Championship in Cary, N.C., it was announced Wednesday by the NCAA. Mount Olive and Town of Cary have co-hosted the NCAA II Baseball National Championship in each of the last five years and had already been awarded the 2014 and 2015 championships. The three-year extension will give Mount Olive and Town of Cary a 10-year run as hosts, second longest in the history of the NCAA Division II Baseball Tournament.

The Division II Baseball Championship was among 82 site selections announced by the NCAA Wednesday.

“We are excited to be selected as the host of the NCAA Division II Baseball Championship for three more years,” said Mount Olive director of athletics Jeff Eisen. “Our selection indicates recognition by the NCAA of the hard work and dedication that our staff, along with the Town of Cary, has put into hosting the past five championships.”

Eisen and USA Baseball National Training Complex Facility Supervisor Chris Duty have served as Tournament Managers of the Division II Baseball National Championship each year at Cary.

Mount Olive and Town of Cary co-hosted the NCAA Division II Baseball National Championship at USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary each year since 2009. Cary is the sixth city to host the NCAA II Baseball National Championship in the 46-year history of the tournament.
