The 1962 NCAA University Division Baseball Tournament was played at the end of the 1962 NCAA University Division baseball season to determine the national champion of college baseball. The tournament concluded with eight teams competing in the College World Series, a double-elimination tournament in its sixteenth year. Eight regional districts sent representatives to the College World Series with preliminary rounds within each district serving to determine each representative. These events would later become known as regionals. Each district had its own format for selecting teams, resulting in 27 teams participating in the tournament at the conclusion of their regular season, and in some cases, after a conference tournament.[1] The College World Series was held in Omaha, NE from June 11 to June 16. The sixteenth tournament's champion was Michigan, coached by Don Lund. The Most Outstanding Player was Bob Garibaldi of runner-up Santa Clara.

Regionals[edit]

The opening rounds of the tournament were played across eight district sites across the country, each consisting of a field of two to four teams. Each district tournament, except District 2, was double-elimination. The winners of each district advanced to the College World Series.
