Arkansas baseball ranked near the top of D1baseball’s preseason poll

With baseball season right around the corner, D1Baseball released their preseason rankings. Once again, Arkansas baseball finds themselves near the top, ranked No. 3 in the country entering the 2024 season.

The Diamond Hogs are the second-highest ranked SEC team in the poll, just behind Florida who enters the year at the No. 2. spot. Wake Forest claimed the No. 1 ranking to begin the season. Defending national champion LSU was ranked right behind the Razorbacks at No. 4.

Arkansas was one of 10 SEC programs to be ranked in D1Baseball’s preseason poll, which is the most of all other conferences. It also marks the Hogs’ highest ranking in the poll since they began the 2022 season ranked No. 2.

D1Baseball is just the second of five preseason baseball polls to be released. The Razorbacks came in at No. 2 in Perfect Game’s preseason rankings earlier in the month.

After disappointing football and basketball seasons, fans are looking towards Dave Van Horn and Arkansas baseball to provide some much-needed solace. The Razorbacks will officially begin their 2024 campaign on Feb. 16 with a four-game series at home against James Madison.

First pitch for Opening Day is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Baum-Walker Stadium.
