The 2013 Summit League Baseball Tournament took place from May 23–26. The top four regular season finishers of the league's five eligible teams met in the double-elimination tournament held at Oakland University Baseball Field in Rochester, Michigan. Nebraska–Omaha was not eligible. South Dakota State claimed their first tournament championship and earned the Summit League's automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.[2][3][4]

Seeding[edit]

The top four finishers from the regular season were seeded one through four based on conference winning percentage. The teams then played a double elimination tournament. Nebraska–Omaha, in its first year in the Summit League and second at the Division I level, was not eligible for the tournament due to NCAA reclassification rules.
