The 1951 College World Series was the fifth NCAA-sanctioned baseball tournament that determined a national champion. The tournament was held as the conclusion of the 1951 NCAA baseball season and was played at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska from June 13 to June 17. The tournament's champion was the Oklahoma Sooners, coached by Jack Baer. The Most Outstanding Player was Sidney Hatfield of Tennessee. Oklahoma won national championships in football, wrestling, and baseball in the 1950–51 academic year.

The tournament consisted of no preliminary round of play as teams were selected directly into the College World Series. From 1947 to 1949 and from 1954 to the present, teams competed in the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament preliminary rounds to earn the right to play in the College World Series.[1]
