  • Note: In 1951, Ohio State participated in the district playoffs, which they won, and moved onto the College World Series. Prior to 1954, district playoff games were not considered a part of the National Collegiate Baseball Championship, and thus are not counted in Ohio State's NCAA tournament record.
