Xavier has made an NCAA Tournament appearance just once and that was in 2009 when they went 1-2 in the Regionals. Their success was due to their 39-21 (.650) record which is the best they have ever done here at Hayden Field. That team was led by the power-hitting Ben Thomas who slugged a Hayden Field record of 16 (tied with Dan Froehle) and a 2nd best 69 RBIs.
