NCAA Division 2 Baseball Tournament – Conference Alignment & Links

NCAA Baseball Logo

All 237 NCAA Division 2 baseball teams are starting up their seasons with the same goal in mind.  That goal is to be one of the 48 teams that make the NCAA Tournament. 

Each Conference is divided out into 1 of 8 Regions and this alignment has changed for 2009.  These Regions comprise the first round of the NCAA Tournament.  Six sites will host 6 teams, one site (West) will host 4 teams and one site (South) will host 8 teams.  These Regional’s will be played as a double-elimination tournament to determine the Regional Champion who will advance as 1 of the 8 teams to the NCAA Division 2 National Tournament.  The double-elimination Championship this year will be played May 23-30 in Cary, NC.  NCAA Tourney Info

The Regional winners are already paired for the National Tourney.  For 2009 they are as follows –

Therefore, if you are following your Conference you might also want to look ahead to the teams that make up your Region and, if you like to look ahead, the teams that could be your 1st round NCAA National Tournament opponent.  That’s why those of us that are watching the Northern Sun Conference in the Central Region are also keeping a close eye on the Rocky Mountain Conference.

Here are the Regional breakdowns, including the links to each of the Conference’s to make it easier to keep track of the schools within each.

    The Atlantic Sun Conference and Big South Conferences you have listed are Division I conferences…some of the teams have just transitioned over to D-I

    Thanks SCSU – I’ll remove them from the list here. The NCAA 2009 Division II Baseball Championship Handbook lists them on there but does have an asterisk showing that they aren’t eligible for the Tournament.

    Comments (or corrections) are always welcome.
