♦ SEC Tournament: You Are Watching History (SEC Digital Network)
For the first time in the 34-year era of the Southeastern Baseball Tournament, 10 conference teams will compete for the coveted championship this year at Regions Park. The decision to add teams, finalized in December 2011, adds a new wrinkle to one of the most popular events in college baseball.
The SEC Baseball Tournament as we know it began in 1977, with teams competing in Oxford, Miss., for the right to be called champion. During the past three decades, the SEC’s baseball gathering has morphed into a signature event, becoming one of the most attended athletic competitions in all of college sports.
A look at its history shows a multitude of format changes and host locations. The first gathering, held at Oxford’s Swayze Field, featured just four teams, a double-elimination bracket that saw Ole Miss win a title on its home field. The event’s home rotated around the SEC, with Baton Rouge, La.; Starkville, Miss.; and Gainesville, Fla., all taking turns hosting. Even the famed New Orleans Superdome has served as headquarters for SEC baseball, as 1992 saw the league’s best play in one of the nation’s most recognized sports venues.
