The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association today released its preseason rankings of top baseball programs for the 2010 season. Baseball America released its rankings last week. There is not a lot of disagreement between the two. Texas is numero uno in both preseason polls. NCBWA has Louisiania State in second, Virginia in third, Cal State Fullerton in fourth and Rice in fifth. Baseball America switched Virginia and LSU but had the same top 5.
LSU beat Texas in last year's College World series. Are they destined for a rematch in Omaha?
Regardless, we will see many of the players in these rankings on the Cape and in other summer leagues soon enough.
