The public is invited to attend Bradley's final practice at Dozer Park before the Braves head to Louisville for the weekend's NCAA Baseball Regional.

The Braves practice at 11:00 AM Wednesday and will depart from the stadium at approximately 1:30.

Bradley is making its seventh all-time appearance in the NCAA Baseball Championship, but the first since 1968.  The team holds a season record of 35-19.

Bradley was the final team announced during the tournament selection show Monday morning on ESPN-U. The team is the No. 2 seed in the Louisville Regional and faces third-seeded Michigan in the 1:00 PM regional opener Friday at Louisville's Jim Patterson Stadium.

Bradley Shortstop Tyler Leffler was also selected for the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference All-Tournament Team.
