Clemson Ranked 15 in Baseball America Poll

Texas is atop the Baseball America poll, followed by No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Louisiana State, No. 4 Cal State Fullerton, and No. 5 Rice.

Other ACC teams ranked in the top 25 include No. 6 Georgia Tech, No. 9 Florida State, No. 16 Miami and No. 20 North Carolina, meaning six of the top-20 teams are from the ACC.

The Tigers, who are also ranked No. 16 in the preseason Collegiate Baseball poll, had a 44-22 overall record and 19-11 ACC regular-season mark in 2009, and they advanced to the Tempe (AZ) Super Regional after capturing the Clemson Regional title.

Clemson returns eight starters in the field and 20 lettermen. The Tigers will open the 2010 season on February 19 against Miami (OH) at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Top Stories
