FSU opens at 12th in Baseball America poll

The Florida State baseball team opened at No. 12 in the Baseball America poll, nearly matching the No. 11 preseason ranking by D1baseball.com a week ago.

In the BA poll, Texas is the top team and is followed by Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Notre Dame and Virginia. This represents a wide disparity among the viewpoint of the ACC schools as the BA poll differs from the D1 rankings with Notre Dame (13th in D1) and Virginia (unranked in D1).

FSU will also play BA’s No. 6 team, Florida, as well as ranked ACC schools like No. 16 NC State, No. 21 Georgia Tech and No. 25 Miami. The full Baseball America poll can be viewed here.

FSU opens up full squad practices on Friday. The Seminoles will hold a Fan Day on Feb. 12 with the season beginning on Feb. 18 against James Madison.
