2018 SEC Baseball Tournament schedule

The Florida Gators finished its 2018 regular season on a sour note with four consecutive losses. It’s the first time Florida has been swept on the weekend since Auburn accomplished the feat in 2017 (March 17-19) and the first time Florida has lost four games in a row since 2013.

Despite the rough ending, the No. 1 Gators did enough throughout the season to win the league outright. It’s Florida’s 15th SEC championship and the fifth for Kevin O’Sullivan. It also gave the Gators the No. 1 seed for the SEC Tournament, which begins next week in Hoover, Alabama.

Florida will travel straight from Starkville, Mississippi to Hoover for the tournament.

The LSU Tigers won the 2017 SEC Tournament with a perfect 4-0 record. The Tigers beat Missouri (10-3), Kentucky (10-0), South Carolina (11-0) and Arkansas (4-2) on their way to the championship.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
