SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Friday is a day 17 years in the making for the Notre Dame baseball program, as the Irish host their first NCAA Regional since 2004 against Central Michigan.

Of course, the excitement is building for Friday for that reason, but it will also be the first time the Irish will play in front of a sold-out crowd this season.

Irish manager Link Jarrett says the players juices were flowing when they found out the tickets were sold-out in just an hour.

But the Irish know the excitement that comes with the first sold-out crowd of the season does not guarantee any outcome on the scoreboard. Jarrett says the Domers remain focused on the task at hand.

“When we show up tomorrow for the game, it is 100 percent baseball,” Jarrett said. “We try to put all of the other exciting pieces of this, leave those aside and lets lock in and make sure we are preparing just like we did for every other game of the season. The postseason is different for everybody. Make no mistake, it is. You just want to make sure when you are at home, you just want to make sure you keep your routine as home-like as you can when you are in your own complex and in your own space.”

The first home playoff game for the Irish is Friday at 1 PM against Central Michigan.

Fans who are not attending can catch the action on ESPN 3.
