The 2013 America East Conference Baseball Tournament was held from May 22–26. The top four regular season finishers of the league's six teams met in the double-elimination tournament held at Edward A. LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Massachusetts.[2] This is the first year that the event was held at a pre-determined neutral site since 2001. UMass Lowell, which would join the conference following the season and was a tenant of the park, served as the host of the tournament.[3] Second-seeded Binghamton defeated first-seeded Maine in the championship game, which was played at Rhode Island's Bill Beck Field due to scheduling issues.[4]
