The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament is the conference baseball championship of the NCAA Division I Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. The top four finishers in the regular season participate in the double-elimination tournament, which in 2014 was played at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood, New Jersey.[1] The winner of the tournament receives an automatic berth to the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.

History[edit]

From 1982 to 1993, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference determined its champion by regular season records. From 1990 to 1993, the conference divided into divisions and crowned a champion of each division. The conference eliminated division in 1994 and launched the tournament to crown its conference champion. In 2014, the tournament expanded from four teams to six teams.
