The America East Conference Baseball Tournament, officially known as the America East Conference Baseball Championship, is the conference baseball championship of the NCAA Division I America East Conference. The top four finishers in the regular season of the conference's six eligible teams advance to the double-elimination tournament, which is in the midst of a five-year residency at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Massachusetts. The winner of the tournament receives an automatic berth to the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship. Prior to 1998, the tournament was a six-team double-elimination format. After 2009, the conference also began allowing schools to host the championship on fields without lights.
- See, for example, 1994 North Atlantic Conference Baseball Tournament.
For the first two tournaments, the event was held over two weekends. On the first, the opening round consisted of best-of-three series, for which the league's eight members were paired. The winners of the four opening round series advanced to a double-elimination final round.
- See, for example, 1997 America East Conference Baseball Tournament.
For these three tournaments, the event was held in a single weekend. Its format was the six-team double-elimination format of NCAA Regionals at the time.
- See, for example, 2001 America East Conference Baseball Tournament.
The current format, adopted for the 1998 tournament, is four-team double-elimination. In some years, the event has been held at a campus location, while in others, it has been held at a neutral site.
