From BR Bullpen

The 1998 Atlantic-10 Conference baseball tournament was scheduled to be held at Bear Stadium in Boyertown, PA from May 8 - 10. Rain washed the tournament out all three days and forced a move to Philadelphia, PA. The tournament was changed to a single-elimination format and was held on May 12. Fordham University defeated Virginia Polytechnic Institute for the title. Tom Stein of Fordham was named Most Outstanding Player.
