The Temple Owls baseball team was a varsity intercollegiate athletic team of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, until the end of the 2014 season, when Temple cut the program.[2] For its final season, the team was a member of the American Athletic Conference, having previously been a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference and the Big East Conference. Temple's first baseball team was fielded in 1927. The team played its home games at Skip Wilson Field, 580 Meetinghouse Road, Ambler, Pennsylvania. The Owls were last coached by Ryan Wheeler.

On December 6, 2013, Temple announced that it would cut seven sports, including baseball, at the end of the 2013–14 academic year for financial reasons.[3][4]
