The 1984 Southern Conference Baseball Tournament was held at Hennon Stadium on the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina from April 27 through April 29. This was the league’s first championship tournament to be held since 1953, when seven schools departed the conference to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. Modern conference baseball records begin with the 1954 baseball season. The North Division’s top seed Appalachian State won the tournament and earned the Southern Conference‘s automatic bid to the 1984 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.
The tournament used a double-elimination format.
The top two teams from each division based on regular season conference winning percentage participated in the tournament. The top seed from the North Division played the second seed from the South in the first round, and vice versa. The winners of the first round then played, while the losers played an elimination game. There were no ties in the standings, so no tiebreakers were necessary.
