The 2009 NCAA Division I baseball season, play of college baseball in the United States organized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) at the Division I level, began on February 20, 2009. The season progressed through the regular season, many conference tournaments and championship series, and concluded with the 2009 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament and 2009 College World Series. The College World Series, which consisted of the eight remaining teams in the NCAA Tournament, was held in its annual location of Omaha, Nebraska at Rosenblatt Stadium. It concluded on June 24, 2009, with the final game of the best of three championship series. LSU defeated Texas two games to one to claim their sixth championship.

Realignment[edit]

New programs[edit]

Five new programs joined Division I for the 2009 season. Three programs, Bryant, North Dakota, and SIU Edwardsville, joined from Division II.[1][2][3] The two other Division I members, Oregon and Cal State Bakersfield, were new varsity baseball programs.[4][5]

Dropped programs[edit]

Hawaii-Hilo, which had competed as a Division I independent, dropped to Division II.[6]

Conference changes[edit]

The Big South Conference added two new members. Gardner–Webb, previously of the Atlantic Sun Conference, and Presbyterian, previously a Division I independent, both joined the conference.[7]

Two conferences add a single member. Oregon's new program joined the Pacific-10 Conference.[4] Samford left the Ohio Valley Conference to join the Southern Conference.[7]

Four schools became Division I independents− Bryant, from the Division II Northeast-10 Conference; North Dakota, from the Division II North Central Conference; SIU Edwardsville, from the Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference; and Cal State Bakersfield, in its first season of varsity intercollegiate baseball.[1][2][5]

Preseason rankings[edit]

After an 49–19 season in 2008, the LSU Tigers were ranked #1 prior to the season. Defending World Series champion Fresno State was ranked #19.
