University of Mount Olive and Town of Cary are co-hosts of the National Finals.[1]

In 2019, the University of Tampa claimed its eighth national championship, going unbeaten in the College World Series as the 2 seed. The Spartans defeated Colorado Mesa 3–1 in the Championship Game.

Currently, Florida Southern has won the most Division II baseball titles with nine.

Format

The 56-team tournament consists of a field of eight double-elimination regionals. The eight regions are the Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, Southeast, South Central and West. In most cases, the No. 1 seed hosts a regional.

The eight regional champions advance to the National Finals, which also follows a double-elimination format. Teams are not re-seeded for the National Finals. The tournament field is broken up into two four-team brackets. When four teams remain, the two one-loss teams play the unbeaten team from the opposite bracket. The two remaining teams play each other for the championship. If both finalists are unbeaten, the championship is, in effect, a best two-out-of-three series. If both finalists have one loss, the championship is a single winner-takes-all game. If one finalist is unbeaten and one finalist has a loss, the one-loss team must defeat the unbeaten team twice to win the championship. The unbeaten team needs to beat the one-loss team only once to win the championship.
