The 2009 America East Conference Baseball Tournament took place from May 21-23 at Pete Sylvester Field in Endicott, New York. The top four regular season finishers of the league's seven teams qualified for the double-elimination tournament. In the championship game, first-seeded Binghamton defeated second-seeded Albany, 16-6, to win its first tournament championship. As a result, Binghamton received the America East's automatic bid to the 2009 NCAA Tournament, the program's first.[1][2][3][4]
