After 30 games of conference play, UNLV, Nevada, San José State and Air Force have all clinched spots in the four-team double-elimination tournament, which will be held on The Mesa for the fifth time in the league's 23-year history (2001, 2010, 2011, 2018). The MW did not conduct a postseason baseball championship in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, second-seeded Nevada (28-24, 18-12 MW) will battle No. 3 seed San José State (28-27, 16-14 MW) in the tournament opener at 1:30 p.m. PT, while regular-season conference champion and No. 1 seed UNLV (36-20, 21-9 MW) will square off against fourth-seeded Air Force (27-27, 15-15) at 6 p.m.

The Wolf Pack captured four of six meetings against the Spartans this season, while the Rebels and Falcons each posted a three-game home sweep against one another. In addition, UNLV logged a 5-1 record vs, SJSU, but went 1-2 against Nevada. Meanwhile, Air Force recorded a 2-1 ledger against the Spartans but won only two of six encounters vs. the Wolf Pack.
