The 1993 NCAA Division I baseball season, play of college baseball in the United States organized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) began in the spring of 1993. The season progressed through the regular season and concluded with the 1993 College World Series. The College World Series, held for the forty seventh time in 1993, consisted of one team from each of eight regional competitions and was held in Omaha, Nebraska at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium as a double-elimination tournament. LSU claimed the championship for the second time.[1]

Realignment[edit]

  • Army and Navy departed the Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League, which dissolved. The Ivy League began sponsoring baseball for its 8 members, all of whom had previously competed in the EIBL. Four teams were placed in each Ivy League Division.
  • Army and Navy joined the Patriot League, which divided into two divisions of four teams each.
  • Davidson rejoined the Southern Conference after a four-year absence.

Format changes[edit]

  • The Mid-Continent Conference dissolved its two divisions and competed as a single conference.

Conference winners[edit]

This is a partial list of conference champions from the 1993 season. The NCAA sponsored regional competitions to determine the College World Series participants. Each of the eight regionals consisted of six teams competing in double-elimination tournaments, with the winners advancing to Omaha. 24 teams earned automatic bids by winning their conference championship while 24 teams earned at-large selections.[1][2]
