Tigers Ranked No. 1 in Baseball

Clemson will open its 2007 baseball schedule as the No. 1 team in the country according to Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball, who released their weekly polls on Monday.

The Tigers, who moved to the top spot after previous No. 1 Rice went 1-3 last week, will play host to George Mason in a three-game series starting Friday at 4:00 PM at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. There will not be another Sports Weekly poll released until later this month, as Clemson was ranked #2 in its preseason poll.

In 2006, Clemson also moved to No. 1 prior to playing its first game. Baseball America ranked the Tigers No. 2 in its preseason poll, but they jumped to No. 1 in its February 6 poll. The Tigers opened the season against James Madison on February 17.
