The 2015 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament began on Friday, May 29, 2015 as part of the 2015 NCAA Division I baseball season.

Contents

The 64 participating NCAA Division I college baseball teams were selected out of an eligible 298 teams. Thirty-one teams were awarded an automatic bid as champions of their conferences, and 33 teams were selected at-large by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee.

Teams were divided into sixteen regionals of four teams, which conducted a double-elimination tournament. Regional champions then faced each other in Super Regionals, a best-of-three series to determine the eight participants of the College World Series.

Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia split the first two games of the best-of-three championship series, before Virginia won game 3, 4–2, to win their first national championship in baseball. The two teams previously met in the championship series in 2014, which Vanderbilt won.
