C-USA selects Southern Miss to host 2014 Baseball Championship

Athletic directors from Conference USA chose Southern Miss to host the 2014 Baseball Championship.

This is first time since 2009 that the city of Hattiesburg will host the tournament and the fourth time in conference history, more than other program in C-USA.

The 8-team championship runs from May 21-25.

Golden Eagles head coach Scott Berry spoke about the importance of the tournament to the community and what it says about his program.

"We've hosted it in the past and our people have done an outstanding job. The one thing that you get in Hattiesburg in a conference tournament is you get a great support from our university community as well as the Hattiesburg and surrounding communities."

Pete Taylor Park has been the host site in 1996, 2005 and 2009.
