Georgia baseball receives votes in USA TODAY preseason poll

The Georgia Bulldogs received six votes in the preseason USA TODAY Sports baseball coaches poll. Georgia star infielder/outfielder Charlie Condon headlines Georgia’s roster. Condon hit 25 home runs last season and recorded 67 RBIs as he was named the National Freshman of the Year.

The Bulldogs finished 29-27 last season including 11-19 in conference play. The Dawgs finished 11th in the SEC in 2023. Georgia is looking to improve in 2024, but faces a challenging conference schedule.

Overall, the SEC has three of the top five teams in the country in Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Texas A&M. Eight teams in the top 25 of the preseason USA TODAY Sports baseball coaches poll are from the SEC. Based on the voting, Georgia is projected to finish No. 11 in the SEC. The SEC is typically baseball’s toughest conference and that appears to be the case in 2024.

Wake Forest checks in as the No. 1 team in the country. The ACC should be competitive in baseball as the conference has six top 25 teams.
