History of the SEC Baseball Tournament
The first-ever SEC Baseball Tournament was hosted by the University of Mississippi in 1977. The top two teams from the western and eastern divisions of the conference squared off in a four-team double elimination tournament. The host site for the tournament in the following years rotated between western division and eastern division champions.
Fast forward to 1998, when the site of the tournament was officially moved to Hoover, AL. The city has been the home of the SEC Baseball tournament since that time and plans are to continue hosting the event in the foreseeable future.
