The 2015 Miami Hurricanes baseball team will represent the University of Miami during the 2015 NCAA Division I baseball season. The Hurricanes will play their home games at Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. They will be led by head coach Jim Morris, in his 22nd season at Miami.

Previous season

In 2014, the Hurricanes finished the season as champions of the ACC's Coastal Division with a record of 44–19, 24–6 in conference play. They qualified for the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Tournament, and were eliminated in pool play. They qualified for the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament, and were hosts of the Coral Gables regional which included Texas Tech, Columbia, and Bethune-Cookman. The Hurricanes shut out Bethune-Cookman, 1–0, in the opening game, but then fell 3–0 to Texas Tech to move into the loser's bracket. There, the Hurricanes again defeated the Wildcats, this time by a score of 10–0. In the first game of the regional final against the Red Raiders, Miami won 2–1 in 10 innings. However, in the second game, Texas Tech won 4–0 and advanced to the Lubbock Super Regional, and subsequently the College World Series.
