The 1985 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament was played at the end of the 1985 NCAA Division I baseball season to determine the national champion of college baseball. The tournament concluded with eight teams competing in the College World Series, a double-elimination tournament in its thirty ninth year. Eight regional competitions were held to determine the participants in the final event. Five regions held a four team, double-elimination tournament while three regions included six teams, resulting in 38 teams participating in the tournament at the conclusion of their regular season, and in some cases, after a conference tournament.[1] The thirty-ninth tournament champion was Miami (FL), coached by Ron Fraser. The Most Outstanding Player was Greg Ellena of the Miami (FL).

Regionals

The opening rounds of the tournament were played across eight regional sites across the country, each consisting of either a four-team field or a six-team field. Each regional tournament is double-elimination, however region brackets are variable depending on the number of teams remaining after each round. The winners of each regional advanced to the College World Series.

Bold indicates winner.
