Seton Hall Wins Big East Baseball Championship

The Seton Hall Pirates captured the 2011 Big East Conference Baseball Championship Sunday in a meeting of regional schools, defeating, St. John's, 4-2. This was Seton Hall's first championship since 2001.

The fifth-seeded Pirates, who needed to win their last three games of the regular season to qualify for the BIG EAST Championship, finished as the only unbeaten team in the eight-team field. Seton Hall defeated the tournament’s top two seeds to become the lowest seed to ever win the BIG EAST title. Seton Hall (33-23), which had previously won the tournament in 1987 and 2001, earned the BIG EAST’s automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.

St. John’s (35-20) left 13 men on base, including six in the last three innings, in its bid for a record seventh BIG EAST title.
