On June 13, 2012, the Asheville Tourists clinched the South Atlantic League's Southern division first half title. By winning the first half regular season division title, the Tourists have secured home field advantage in the Southern Division Championship Series.

Asheville will host Game Two of their post-season series on Friday, September 7, 2012. If necessary, Game Three will be played at McCormick Field on Saturday, September 8, 2012.
