List of NCAA Division I baseball programs

The following is a list of schools that participate in NCAA Division I baseball.[1] In the 2022 season, 301 Division I schools competed. These teams compete to go the 64-team Division I baseball tournament and then to Omaha, Nebraska, and Charles Schwab Field, for the eight-team College World Series (CWS).

Conference affiliations are current for the coming 2023 NCAA baseball season. Years of conference changes, indicated in footnotes, reflect baseball seasons, which take place in the calendar year after a conference change takes effect. Numbers of appearances in the NCAA Tournament and CWS, plus CWS titles, are current through the 2022 college baseball season.[2][3]

Another Division I program will be downgraded after the 2023 season. Hartford has begun its plan to drop its athletic department, including baseball, to Division III in 2024.[4]

New programsEdit

In September 2017, Akron, a member of the Mid-American Conference, announced that it was planning to reinstate its baseball program, which had been dropped after the 2015 season. Baseball returned for the 2020 season, abbreviated due to COVID-19.[19]

Recently eliminated programsEdit

  • Boise State University, which had reinstated baseball for the 2020 season after a 40-year absence,[20] dropped the sport after that season due to COVID-19-related financial challenges.[21]
  • Chicago State University announced in June 2020 that it would drop baseball. The school had been facing major budgetary challenges even before the onset of COVID-19.[22]
  • Furman University announced in May 2020 that the Paladins baseball team would be terminated due to budget concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic.[23]
  • La Salle also dropped baseball at the end of the 2020–21 academic year for sustainability reasons.[24]
  • North Carolina Central discontinued baseball after the 2021 season.[25]

The IPFW athletic program was inherited by PFW, and shortly before the institutional split, the athletic program branding was changed from "Fort Wayne" to "Purdue Fort Wayne".

The former UTPA athletic program became the UTRGV program after the merger; UTRGV is therefore credited with all of UTPA's appearances in the NCAA tournament.
