Tournament

The Southern Conference Baseball Tournament is held annually. Beginning in 2009, the top eight teams (eleven teams sponsor baseball in the conference) will participate in a two-bracketed double-elimination tournament. The previous format included ten teams participating in the tournament with the lowest four seeds (#7–#10) competing in a single elimination first round. The winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament while the other teams must rely on an at-large bid.

History

The Southern Conference Baseball Tournament began in 1984 as a four team tournament. The tournament was held at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park in Charleston, South Carolina from 1997 to 2008.
