UPDATE (Sunday, May 15, 8:30 p.m. Eastern): The last of the conference tournaments are complete. This page includes results of every game from each of the 22 conference tournaments.
The Road to Cary begins in earnest with the first of 22 D2 baseball conference tournaments taking place this weekend.
The remaining 18 tourneys (the Sunshine State and Pacific West conferences do not sponsor a postseason playoff; the regular season champions of those leagues earn the automatic bids into the NCAA tournament) take place over the next two weeks.
While the majority of these tourneys boast a double-elimination format, a few use single-elimination and others use a combination of the two. Anywhere from four to eight teams qualify for each respective conference playoff.
Each of the 24 conference champions earn an automatic berth into the NCAA D2 Baseball Tournament, with the remaining 32 teams selected from an at-large pool (eight teams each from the Midwest and Central regions, six each teams from the South Central and West regions, and seven teams from each of the remaining four regions).
Each of the eight regionals will run from May 19 through May 22, with the Championship Series set to begin May 28 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C.
Here’s a region-by-region listing of all 22 D2 softball conference tournaments; all information listed is subject to change without notice, and, where available, all times listed are local to the site of competition.
