Baseball Is Back

With the Northeast in a deep freeze and some still under a couple feet of snow with more on the way. Today Mark the start of the 2015 College Baseball Season. There was over 301 college baseball teams playing today.


For the baseball lovers that means we finally have some new games to watch. Some of the talk will be about the new ball with lower laces for better flight. Because since the regulations and bat restrictions the power numbers have been reduced. Now you have MLB saying they are going to make the strike zone smaller for more offence. In my opinion not sure either one needs to be done. Remember offence is good but defense is suppose to win championships.




Which brings me to my next point Vanderbilt won last year's NCAA championship with a great pitching staff and good defense. So what do you think the story will be this year? What team will make a run that no one would pick. Will Miami, Texas, Florida, or South Carolina make it back?






That is one of the best things about a new season you just never now! Here is the list of the top 25 thanks to College Baseball Daily
