May 20-25 Joseph P. Riley Jr. Stadium

Charleston, SC

The Citadel, host

For the 19th consecutive season, the Southern Conference Baseball Tournament will be held in Charleston, S.C. at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park on the campus of The Citadel.

 

All 10 teams qualify for the tournament which features a double-elimination format. Play begins on Tuesday, May 20 and features a two-bracket system this season. The two winners of the brackets will meet on Sunday, May 25 for the championship live on SportSouth.

 

Located on the banks of the Ashley River, the $19.5 million state of the art ballpark opened in 1997 giving The Citadel and the Southern Conference one of the top collegiate baseball facilities in the nation. With seating for 6,000, Riley Park is named after the long-time Charleston mayor who is a 1964 graduate of The Citadel. It was rated the 20th best collegiate baseball park in the country in 2003 by Baseball America.

 

Riley Park also serves as the home of the Class A Charleston River Dogs, a South Atlantic League affiliate of the New York Yankees.

 

The single-game tournament attendance record of 5,419 was set in 2003 for an opening round game between The Citadel and the College of Charleston. The all-tournament attendance record was set in 2004 when more than 35,000 fans attended Riley Park, an average of 2,343 per game. Over 320,000 patrons have attended the 16 previous SoCon Baseball Tournaments held in Charleston. More than 350,000 patrons have attended the 17 previous SoCon Baseball Tournaments held in Charleston.
