The 2005 Southern Conference Baseball Tournament was held at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park in Charleston, SC from May 23 through May 27. Eighth seeded Furman won the tournament and earned the Southern Conference's automatic bid to the 2005 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. It was the Paladins' second SoCon tournament win.

The top eight baseball programs in the conference participated in the double-elimination tournament. Davidson, Wofford, and Appalachain State were not in the field. While College of Charleston dominated the regular season, Furman swept Davidson in the final regular season series to make the tournament, then swept the tournament for the unlikely championship.
