To say that Region 23 is the toughest Region in all of Division 2 Junior College baseball might be an understatement. In the last 10 years, there have been 5 National Champs (LSU-Eunice-4, Jones-1) and 3 National Runner-Ups (Hinds, Jones, LSU-Eunice). So in the past 10 years, the team that has come out of this region has played in 8 National Title games. If that does not make this the SEC of Junior College Baseball we are not sure what would.
Previous Winners: ‘19 Pearl River, ‘18 LSU-Eunice (National Champs), ‘17 Hinds, ‘16 Jones (National Champs), ‘15 LSU-Eunice (National Champs), ‘14 Hinds (National Runner-Ups), ‘13 LSU-Eunice (National Runner-Ups), ‘12 LSU-Eunice (National Champs), ‘11 Jones (National Runner-Ups), ‘10 LSU-Eunice (National Champs),
