The 1975 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament was held in 1975 at various locations across the country. Thirty-two NCAA Division I college baseball teams met after having played their way through a regular season, and for some, a conference tournament, to play in the NCAA Tournament. The tournament culminated with 8 teams in the College World Series at historic Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska.

The 1975 tournament marked the first appearance for LSU, which would become a college baseball superpower in the succeeding decades, claiming six national championships between 1991 and 2009. LSU won the 1961 Southeastern Conference championship to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, but declined the bid to avoid playing integrated teams.
