The 2013 Atlantic 10 Conference Baseball Tournament was the postseason baseball tournament of the NCAA Division I Atlantic 10 Conference. It took place from May 22–25. The top seven regular season finishers of the league's fifteen teams met in the double-elimination tournament to be held at newly renovated[2] Robert and Mariam Hayes Stadium on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina. In the championship game, first-seeded Saint Louis defeated second-seeded Charlotte, 7-4, to win its third tournament championship (its second under head coach Darin Hendrickson). Saint Louis earned the conference's automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.[3] As a team, SLU collected 92 hits in six days (.395 average), shattering the previous A-10 Tournament record of 65.
