UM baseball team cracks another top 10

The University of Miami baseball team earned its second top-10 ranking of the preseason Monday, checking in at No. 9 in Baseball America’s first top 25 poll of the spring.

One week after cracking Perfect Game’s top 10 at No. 10, the Hurricanes earned their top ranking of the preseason and fourth top-25 recognition by a major outlet.

Collegiate Baseball Newspaper slotted Miami at No. 14 in its preseason poll released in December, while D1Baseball rated Miami No. 15 in its rankings released last week.

Miami ended the 2014 season No. 23 in Baseball America’s poll. Six teams on Miami’s 2015 schedule were also ranked: Virginia (No. 4), Florida (No. 6), Louisville (No. 12), North Carolina (No. 17), Florida State (No. 21) and UCF (No. 22).
