Div. 2- Gulf District Preview (Reg. 23)

To say that Region 23 is the toughest Region in all of Division 2 Junior College baseball might be an understatement.

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),
