Alabama baseball moves into top 10 in latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll

Following an impressive series victory over Tennessee, Alabama baseball is riding high. With a surprisingly successful start to the 2024 season, the Crimson Tide now finds itself inside the Top-10 of the latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll.

With a new head coach and high turnover on the roster, not many expected Alabama to perform as well as it has so far. While being a top-10 team is noteworthy, it’s important to put it into perspective, especially as conference play gets underway.

Though the Tide ranks No. 10, there are still six SEC teams ranked above them. Defeating Tennessee in a series 2-1 turned heads, but it will take consistent winning for Alabama to be considered a genuine contender.
