OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Big East Conference will hold its 2015 baseball tournament at TD Ameritrade Park.

The conference announced Friday that athletic directors had approved championship sites for 16 sports in 2014-15. The baseball tournament is set for May 21-24.

TD Ameritrade Park hosted the Big Ten tournament in May. The 24,000-seat downtown stadium is site of the College World Series.

This will be the first time the stadium has hosted the Big East tournament. Host institution Creighton is entering its second year in the Big East.

The Big East tournament champion receives an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament.
