The 1993 Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Tournament was held in Greenville, SC from May 15 through May 20. Clemson won the tournament and earned the Atlantic Coast Conference's automatic bid to the 1993 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.

Seeding and format[edit]

All nine teams qualified for the conference tournament, with several byes allowing for a nine-team double-elimination tournament.

From TheACC.com:

On Saturday (The Semifinals) of the ACC Baseball Tournament, the match-up between the four remaining teams is determined by previous opponents. If teams have played previously in the tournament, every attempt will be made to avoid a repeat match-up between teams, regardless of seed. If it is impossible to avoid a match-up that already occurred, then the determination is based on avoiding the most recent, current tournament match-up, regardless of seed. If no match-ups have occurred, the team left in the winners bracket will play the lowest seeded team from the losers bracket.
