CAA Baseball Tournament 2012 Results: No. 1 Seed UNCW Wins Tournament, NCAA Regionals Bid

The 2012 Colonial Athletic Association Baseball Tournament, also known as the Virginia 529 CAA Baseball Championship, has wrapped up, and University of North Carolina Wilmington has taken the win and the automatic bid for the NCAA Baseball Regionals. The number one seed went 2-1 in the tournament, winning their way directly to the championship game before suffering an upset from Delaware to force a final game. They bounced right back, beating Delaware 10-8 in the final game to take the Championship.

Rain made some trouble in the early part of the tournament, including a rain delay making for a seven hour opening game between VCU and George Mason. Towson and Delaware got a long game the old fashioned way, with Delaware tying the game in the eighth inning and finally winning in 12. There weren't many real upsets in the tournament, with six seed Towson's 16-8 win to eliminate four seed George Mason being the biggest. UNCW entered the tournament as the number one seed and exited with the Championship, their only hiccup the 11-9 loss to Delaware that they made up for in the final game.
