Baseball season is getting closer by the day, and coach Jay Johnson and the Tigers have received another No. 1 preseason ranking — this time, by Perfect Game.
LSU tops its preseason top 25 and an SEC-heavy top 10. The Tigers are joined by Tennessee, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Florida and Texas A&M in the top 10. The Tigers have landed two-straight No. 1 recruiting classes and have pulled in some of the top transfer players from the portal.
All four of them could be early-round draft picks in the next MLB Draft, but for now, they are focused on taking the Tigers to Omaha and bringing another championship to Baton Rouge.
The season starts on Friday, Feb.. 17th against Western Michigan at Alex Box Stadium.
