The Oregon State Beavers are the No. 1 national seed in baseball's postseason for the first time in school history.

The Beavers will host UNLV, UC Irvine and North Dakota State in the Corvallis Regional this weekend at Goss Stadium to kick off the NCAA tournament. Oregon State's highest national seeding previously was No. 3 last season.

The Beavers are headed to the postseason for the sixth consecutive season and 15th time overall. It is the fifth time the team will host a regional.

The NCAA tournament opens Friday with 16 four-team, double-elimination regionals. Best-of-three super regionals will be held next week, with those winners moving to the College World Series in Omaha.
