LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – Baseball America also likes the Louisville baseball team. The baseball publication is the latest outlet to rank the Cards as the second best team in Division I.
Going into the new season, the Cards are ranked second by four different outlets. The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Poll, the D1Baseball.com Top 25, and the Perfect Game Top 25 also have the Cardinals as the second best team in the nation.
Louisville’s number 2 ranking is the highest preseason ranking in program history. It also equals the highest ranking ever for the program, matching the high mark set last year when the Cardinals were ranked second for consecutive weeks in May.
The Cardinals are set to open practice on Friday. Louisville opens up the 2016 season on February 19th at home against SIU Edwardsville.
