The 1992 Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Tournament was the 1992 postseason baseball championship of the NCAA Division I Atlantic Coast Conference, held at Greenville Municipal Stadium in Greenville, South Carolina from May 9-13. NC State defeated Clemson in the championship game, earning the conference's automatic bid to the 1992 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.[2]

Format[edit]

All nine teams qualified for the conference tournament, with several byes allowing for a nine-team double-elimination tournament.

Seeding Procedure[edit]

From TheACC.com:

On Saturday (The Semifinals) of the ACC Baseball Tournament, the match-up between the four remaining teams is determined by previous opponents. If teams have played previously in the tournament, every attempt will be made to avoid a repeat match-up between teams, regardless of seed. If it is impossible to avoid a match-up that already occurred, then the determination is based on avoiding the most recent, current tournament match-up, regardless of seed. If no match-ups have occurred, the team left in the winners bracket will play the lowest seeded team from the losers bracket.
