Cal Baseball Video: Coach Mike Neu Says Bears Are in a Tough Regional

Bears open against TCU Friday, but will have to get past Arkansas to win the regional

Cal coach Mike Neu noted in the video above on Monday that the Bears are in a tough Regional, with host Arkansas being the No. 5 overall seed and the top seed for the Fayetteville Regional.

The second-seeded Bears must try to get past TCU on Friday (today) to have a shot at Arkansas on Saturday (assuming Arkansas beats Central Connecticut State on Friday).

None of the Cal players expected to start on Friday has played in a postseason game, and playing in front of Arkansas' intimating crowd with be a challenge if Cal should meet the Razorbacks. Arkansas drew more than 11,000 people to each of its final two regular-season home games, and at least that many figure to be on hand this weekend.
