The 1989 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament was played at the end of the 1989 NCAA Division I 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 forty third year. Eight regional competitions were held to determine the participants in the final event. Each region was composed of six teams, resulting in 48 teams participating in the tournament at the conclusion of their regular season, and in some cases, after a conference tournament.[1] The forty-third tournament's champion was Wichita State, coached by Gene Stephenson. The Most Outstanding Player was Greg Brummett of Wichita State.


Regionals[edit]

The opening rounds of the tournament were played across eight regional sites across the country, each consisting of a six-team field. Each regional tournament is double-elimination, however region brackets are variable depending on the number of teams remaining after each round. The winners of each regional advanced to the College World Series.

Results[edit]

The teams in the CWS were divided into two pools of four, with each pool playing a double-elimination format. For the first time since the first NCAA-sanctioned College World Series in 1947, the series was not a true double elimination tournament. Instead, the winners of the two pools met in a single National Championship game. Texas came out of its pool with no losses. Wichita State won its pool with one loss. Wichita State defeated Texas in the Championship game. Because each team only had one loss, in the championships prior to 1989, the teams would have played one more game--a winner-take-all game for the championship. Therefore, when Texas lost the championship game, rather than play another game for the championship, Wichita State was crowned champion. The new format was adopted for television reasons. The format was switched to a best of three series in 2003.
