The 2019 Southwestern Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament was held at Wesley Barrow Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana from May 15 through May 19. The winner of the tournament, Southern, earned the conference's automatic bid to the 2019 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.[2]

The double elimination tournament featured four teams from each division.

Seeding and format[edit]

The four eligible teams in each division will be seeded one through four, with the top seed from each division facing the fourth seed from the opposite division in the first round, and so on. The teams then play a two bracket, double-elimination tournament with a one-game final between the winners of each bracket.
