Tournament notes[edit]

Round 1[edit]

  • Florida's Jonathon Crawford threw a no-hitter against Bethune-Cookman, the seventh no-hitter in NCAA tournament history and the first since 1991.[3]
  • Kent State defeated Kentucky in 21 innings, the second longest game in NCAA tournament history.[4]
  • Baylor lost to Oral Roberts, the first national seed to lose their round one game since Florida State and Georgia both did so in 2008. Both Georgia and Florida State went on to make the College World Series, with Georgia losing in the championship series.[5]

Round 2[edit]

  • Miami (FL) became the first #1 seed to go 0-2 in Regional play since San Diego in 2007.[6]

Regional Finals[edit]

  • Arizona became the first team ever to score at least 15 runs in every Regional game. They were the first team since Arkansas in 2009 to score 10 or more runs in every Regional game.[5]
  • Stony Brook became the third #4 seed ever to win a Regional, joining Missouri in 2006 and Fresno State in 2008.[5]

Super Regionals[edit]

  • Kent State, Oregon, St. John's, and Stony Brook all appeared in the Super Regionals for the first time.[7][8][9][10]
  • LSU lost a Super Regional in Baton Rouge for the first time (had won previous five).[5]
  • Florida State scored 35 runs in two games against Stanford, tied with LSU (2008) for the most runs in a Super Regional and the most in a 2-game Super Regional (previous record was 26).[5]

College World Series[edit]

  • Stony Brook was the first College World Series participant from the America East Conference and is the first from New York since St. John's in 1980.[11]
  • Kent State was the first MAC team to make the world series since 1976.[5]
  • No school from Texas made the College World Series for the first time since 2001.[5]
  • This is the 20th consecutive year that the SEC has fielded at least one team in the College World Series.[12]
    • This is the 5th consecutive year that the SEC has fielded at least one team in the Championship Series.
  • South Carolina becomes the first team since the '96, '97, '98 LSU Tigers to return to Omaha with a chance to defend their back-to-back Championships. Southern California is the only program in CWS history to win three consecutive CWS titles, or more, (1970-1974),(5).[13]
  • South Carolina entered the tournament riding two significant postseason winning streaks.
    • Longest College World Series winning streak (11 CWS games) in NCAA history.[14]
    • Longest post-season winning streak (21 games) in NCAA history. (This streak includes, Regional, Super Regional and College World Series games, and also consists of six one run wins and four games that required extra innings.)[15]
  • Florida is making a third consecutive appearance in the College World Series for the first time in team history. Fellow 2012 CWS participants Florida State ('94,'95,'96 & '98,99,'00), Arizona ('58,'59,'60) and South Carolina ('02,'03,'04 & '10,'11,'12) have all made three consecutive appearances.[13]
  • The Game 4 match-up between No. 1 seed Florida and No. 8 seed South Carolina marks the first opening-round rematch of the previous season's Championship Game since the 1960 series when Arizona faced, and defeated, the 1959 Champions from Oklahoma State.[15]
  • This is the first appearance by Kent State or Stony Brook in the College World Series.[16][17]
  • Stony Brook is the second team since 1999 to be seeded fourth in a regional and advance to the College World Series (Fresno State won 2008 CWS).[16]
  • Arizona pitcher Konnor Wade became the first pitcher to throw a complete game shutout without a walk in a College World Series game since 1972.
  • For the first time since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1999, neither team that started 2-0 in the CWS was a national seed. (Arizona and Arkansas)[18]
  • As a result of the 20 June 2012 Game 10 rain delay, South Carolina will become the first team, since Georgia did so in 1987, to play all or part of two games on the same calendar day at the CWS when they face Arkansas in the night game (Game 12) on the 21st. The last team to play two full games, in the College World Series, on the same day was Michigan on 2 June 1980.[19]
  • With the 2-0 win over Arkansas in Game 12, South Carolina becomes the first team since 1952 (Holy Cross)(60 years) to win two games in the College World Series on the same day.

CWS records tied or broken[edit]

  • With the Game Four win over No. 1 seed Florida, the No. 8 seed South Carolina Gamecocks extend their NCAA record-setting postseason win streak to 22 consecutive games and their College World Series record-setting consecutive win streak to 12.[20][21] (Both streaks came to an end in Game Eight.)
  • With the 4-1 win over Kent State in Game 10, South Carolina's Michael Roth becomes the College World Series' all-time leader in Most Innings Pitched, with 53 2/3rd over three years. Roth also tied the record for Most CWS Starts with his 7th, and he tied the record for most CWS Wins all-time with a 4-0 CWS record. Additionally, Roth ties the record with Most Years With Wins (3).[22][23]
  • Arizona becomes the first CWS team to hit two home runs in an inning at TD Ameritrade Park after Rob Refsnyder and Bobby Brown hit home runs in the fourth inning of Game 11 against Florida State. In the same game, Florida State uses eight different pitchers, tying a CWS record.[24]
  • With the 3-2 win over Arkansas in Game 13, South Carolina's Matt Price sets a new College World Series Most Wins record with 5.[25][26]
  • Arizona becomes only the second team after South Carolina the previous year to go a perfect 10-0 in the postseason.
