The Johns Hopkins baseball team will make its third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division III tournament on Thursday, when the Blue Jays travel to Sussex, N.J., to play in the six-team, double-elimination Mid-Atlantic Regional.

The Mid-Atlantic winner will advance to the Division III World Series in Battle Creek, Mich., May 26-31.

In the Division I tournament, Navy (24-16-1) will face Wright State (34-19) in a play-in series with a doubleheader Thursday and a single game if necessary Friday in Dayton, Ohio.

Hopkins (33-4), seeded second in the region and sporting its best regular-season record in 15 seasons under coach Joe Babb, will face fifth-seeded Rutgers-Newark at 3 p.m. at Skylands Park.

Tickets for the Mid-Atlantic Regional will be available at Skylands Park throughout the weekend during tournament play. An all-session ticket for all four days is $16 for adults and $10 for students, senior citizens and children. One-day tickets are $5 and $4. Tickets for Sunday's championship game are $6 and $5.

The Mid-Atlantic includes top-seeded Montclair (N.J.) State, the defending national champion, which will play sixth-seeded Eastern Connecticut State on Thursday. Third-seeded Trenton State and fourth-seeded Elizabethtown will open the regional at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
