2022 Men’s College World Series of NCAA Division I Baseball TV and Announcer Schedule


Every pitch of the NCAA Division I Men’s College World Series (MCWS) from Omaha, Neb. will air on ESPN or ESPN2 beginning Friday, June 17 through Thursday, June 23 – with up to 14 games airing in the double-elimination series.

The best-of-three championship finals series begins Saturday, June 25, and concludes with the crowning of the national champion on Sunday, June 26, or Monday, June 27, to wrap up the 2021-22 college sports season on ESPN networks – which has featured 30 NCAA Championship events.
Karl Ravech and Eduardo Pérez, top voices from ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball booth, lead off ESPN’s commentator crew in their 13th and sixth appearances covering the MCWS, respectively. They will be joined by analyst Ben McDonald and reporter Dani Wexelman, who will be making her first trip to the Men’s College World Series. Mike Monaco will see action as the second play-by-play announcer joined by analysts Chris Burke and Kyle Peterson. An Omaha native, Peterson is working his 20th MCWS – 11th in the booth. Kris Budden rounds out ESPN’s MCWS crew in her third season covering the championship series.

Four nationally-seeded teams advanced through Super Regionals including No. 2 Stanford, No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 9 Texas and No. 14 Auburn, joined by Arkansas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Ole Miss to round out the MCWS lineup.

Final Facts

* Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas join the lineup as the only past national champions in this year’s MCWS, though none have raised the trophy in the last 15 years.
* Texas is making its 38th appearance in Omaha, more than any other school and outpacing second-place Miami by 13 showings.
* There have already been 424 home runs in this year’s NCAA Baseball Tournament, the most in a single postseason in Division I history.
* Four SEC schools make up the elite eight teams that have advanced to the MCWS – Arkansas, Auburn, Ole Miss and Texas A&M — tying for the most teams from a single conference to reach the Men’s College World Series. The SEC has had at least one team in the MCWS Finals in 12 of the past 13 seasons.
