Breaking News: Baltimore Recommended to NCAA for 2010 Men's Lacrosse Final Four

Christian Swezey and John Jiloty of Inside Lacrosse are reporting from two sources that the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament Committee has recommended Baltimore for the 2010 NCAA men's lacrosse tournament Final Four. Although 2011 and 2012 were also being considered, the recommendations for those years are to Boston and New Jersey respectively.

M&T Bank Stadium would be the host venue for the event as it has been in years past. The last time Baltimore hosted the Final Four was in 2007, when Johns Hopkins upset Duke in the championship.

This decision is not final; it is only a recommendation. It is up to the NCAA to determine the final sites, however this is a good step for Baltimore. The final decision will likely be made next month.
