It came down to the final at-bat of the final game of the regular season to determine the #1 seed, but the bracket for the 2024 Pac-12 Baseball Tournament is set with ARIZONA claiming the top seed for the first time. The Wildcats got a 2-run walk-off double to beat Oregon State on Saturday to bring home the title.  The 3rd annual tournament gets underway on Tuesday, May 21 at Scottsdale Stadium in Scottsdale, Ariz.

This will be the 2nd straight year for this tournament's format, a change from the 2022 inaugural tournament, with an expanded field from 8 teams to 9 teams and utilizing pool play. Pool play will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with 3 games per day followed by the semifinals on Friday, May 24 and the Championship game on Saturday, May 25. Pool A will include seeds #1, #6 and #9 with Pool B made up of seeds #2, #5, and #8. Seeds #3, #4 and #7 will compete in Pool C. 

Arizona had come into the final weekend of Pac-12 play needing just 1 win over Oregon State to clinch the #1 seed.  However, Oregon State won the first 2 games of the series in convincing fashion and led 3-2 going to the bottom of the 9th.  This will be the highest seed for Arizona in the 3 years of the Pac-12 Tournament, earning a #5 seed in 2022 and the #8 seed in 2023.  The Wildcats did make the championship game last season as the #8 seed.

Joining the Wildcats in Pool A is #6 seed CALIFORNIA and #9 seed WASHINGTON, two teams that just faced each other to close the regular season with the Bears winning all 3 games in Berkeley.  Those two will match-up again on Tuesday at 7 p.m. PT.  Arizona will then get Washington, a team the Wildcats lost 2 of 3 to in April up in Seattle in a series of 1-run games.  Cal will then match up with Arizona on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the final game of 3 days of pool play.  The Wildcats swept a road series with the Bears in early April.

Heading up Pool B will be the #2 seed OREGON STATE, the 3rd straight year the Beavers will be the #2 seed.  Mitch Canham's squad will share Pool B with #5 seed ARIZONA STATE and #8 seed STANFORD.  The Sun Devils and Cardinal will open the tournament at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, with ASU having swept the 3-game series on the Farm the previous weekend.  A re-match of the 2022 championship game, Stanford will be the first test for Oregon State on Wednesday morning.  The Beavers took 2 of 3 from Stanford in mid-April up in Corvallis.  ASU and OSU wrap up Pool B at 10 a.m. on Thursday morning and the red-hot Sun Devil team, who's won 10 of their last 12 conference games, will seek revenge after being swept by the Beavers in early April.

Ending the regular season on a 5-game win streak, OREGON will be the #3 seed.  Joining the Ducks in Pool C will be #4 seed USC and #7 UTAH who just wrapped up the regular season with each other, the Trojans coming away with a 3-game series sweep.  The Utes will then take on Oregon on Wednesday afternoon, the Ducks just having taken 2 of 3 from Utah in Eugene earlier this month.  Oregon and USC match up in the 3 vs. 4 game on Thursday afternoon, the Trojans looking for a little payback after dropping 2 of 3 in Eugene back in mid-April.

At the conclusion of pool play on Thursday night, the three pool winners will advance to the Friday single-elimination semifinals along with one Wild Card team. The Wild Card will be determined by the best record of the non-advancing teams with any tiebreaker awarded to the highest seeded team.

The semifinal matchups will pit the highest-seeded team against the lowest-seeded team on one side with the second-highest seed and second-lowest seed on the other. Teams from the same pool however will not play each other in the semifinals.

Every game will be televised with Pac-12 Networks the home for all games Tuesday through Friday. On Saturday, the 2024 Pac-12 Tournament Championship Game will air on ESPNU at 7 p.m. PT.
