The Florida State Seminoles just won their seventh ACC baseball  tournament championship, and they are hosting one of the 16 NCAA regionals in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

After Miami missed the NCAA tournament, Florida State now has the longest-active NCAA tournament appearance streak. The Seminoles have now made 40 consecutive NCAA tournaments.

The last time Florida State missed the NCAA tournament was 1977.

Miami, who finished 31-27, had made the NCAA tournament 44 straight times. The last time the Hurricanes missed the tournament before 2017 was in 1972.

Despite the tournament streak, Florida State has never won a national championship in baseball. The Seminoles were the runner-up in 1970, 1986, and 1999, and they have appeared in the College World Series 21 times.

The Seminoles will host the No. 4 seed Tennessee Tech in the first game of their NCAA regional. The other two teams in their region are No. 2 seed UCF and No. 3 seed Auburn.
