Ohio State in Tallahassee Regionals

2009 will mark the second time the Buckeyes travel to Dick Howser Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla in pursuit of a NCAA baseball championship. The first trip to Florida'a state capital came 15 years ago in 1994 where the Buckeyes went 1-2 and were eliminated by Jacksonville.

In game 1 of the Atlantic II Regional the Buckeyes faced the Cougars of BYU and won 6-1. The Buckeyes would then fall to Kansas 20-6, and Jacksonville 6-5 to see the 1994 season end.

That season Coach Todd's team went 49-9 the best record in he country and a mark that sets the highest winning percentage in a single season at Ohio State. The Buckeyes won the Big Ten regular season and tournament championships in the process. Ohio State finished the season ranked in 3 poll's top 13. The '94 squad has school records in batting average, .354, home runs, 94, and slugging percentage, .583.
