The Big East Conference Baseball Tournament is the conference championship tournament in baseball for the Big East Conference. It is a double-elimination tournament and seeding is based on regular season records. The winner receives the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. The Big East Tournament champion is separate from the conference champion. The conference championship is determined solely by regular season record.

From 1985–2013, the tournament was sponsored by the old Big East Conference. Starting with the 2014 tournament, it has been sponsored by the newly formed, non-football Big East Conference.

Tournament[edit]

The Big East Conference Baseball Tournament is an eight team double-elimination tournament held annually at various location in the Big East Conference region. The eight teams with the best conference record at the end of the regular season earn berths in the tournament. The winner earns the Big East's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. The remaining Big East teams can also qualify for the 64 team NCAA Tournament by receiving an at-large bid.
