The Big 12 Baseball Tournament is an annual tournament held each season that determines the postseason baseball champion of the Big 12 Conference in the NCAA. It is held in Oklahoma City at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The tournament has been held at this venue almost every year since its inception. Notably, the event was also played in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the MLB's Texas Rangers in 2002 and 2004.
