2013 Great West Conference Baseball Tournament

The 2013 Great West Conference Baseball Tournament was held from May 21–25. All eight of the league's teams met in the double-elimination tournament held at new Jersey Institute of Technology's Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark, New Jersey. As the Great West is a new conference, the league does not have an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. Third seeded Houston Baptist won their first championship, ending Utah Valley's run of three consecutive titles dating to the event's inception.[2][3][4]
