2010 SEC Baseball tournament games are underway on the first scheduled day. The SEC Baseball tournament games are taking place at Regions Park in Hoover, Alabama, and present a double elimination tournament to decide the 2010 SEC champion. The SEC regular season champion was Florida, which also won the Eastern Division, while it was Auburn that won the Western Division. The top eight teams from the regular season make it into the final SEC Baseball Tournament brackets, and games got started on Wednesday, May 26th down in Alabama.

3. South Carolina
6. Ole Miss
Taking the teams that make it into the tournament, the worst team plays the first team and so on down until every team is seeded to play. All eight teams play on the first day of the tournament (May 26th), with games scheduled to begin 30 minutes after the first one ends. Two brackets run simultaneously to make it a quicker process, and the staggered double elimination can make for some surprise match-ups. The SEC Tournament bracket is already underway, with the first game between Alabama and Auburn taking place this morning. Auburn advances to play the winner of Ole Miss and South Carolina on Thursday. Alabama will play against the loser to decide which team is eliminated from the tournament first.
Games will play out in the 2010 SEC Baseball Tournament schedule until there are only two teams remaining in the brackets. That final SEC Championship Game is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 30th at 1 p.m. It will be broadcast live on ESPN2 for everyone to enjoy. Up to that point, all of the games will be streaming live on ESPN360.com as the SEC works through their full 2010 Baseball Tournament schedule.
Several of the teams look really good heading into the postseason tournament, including of course the Florida Gators which finished the regular season with a 40-13 overall record. South Carolina was 43-13, Vanderbilt was 40-15, and Auburn was 39-17, all showing that there are some really good teams at the top of the SEC that would love to win this tournament and get an even better seeding in the 2010 College Baseball World Series.
