Georgia Tech baseball is coming off one of their best seasons in recent memory and enter the 2020 season as a top-25 team according to D1Baseball.com
D1Baseball.com has released their preseason top-25 for the 2020 season that starts up next month. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are coming off one of their best seasons under Danny Hall that saw them go 43-19 and finish the season ranked as the country’s 17th best team.
To start the 2020 season, Danny Hall’s squad will once again be a top-25 team, as they are ranked by D1Baseball as the country’s No.19 team. Seven other ACC teams made the preseason top-25 for D1Baseball while non-conference opponents Georgia (No. 5) and Auburn (No. 8) also made the top-25. Overall, the Jackets have seven opponents who are currently ranked in the preseason top-25 by D1Baseball with No. 1 Louisville and No. 18 Wake Forest not on their regular season schedule.
Overall, starting the season as a top-25 ranked team is great news for Georgia Tech as the Jackets did lose quite a bit from last season as they saw the departures of such players as Connor Thomas, Kyle McCann, Xzavion Curry, and Chase Murray.
The Jackets are currently set to begin their 2020 season on Feburary 14th when they take on the Saint Peter’s Peacock in the first game of a three-game opening weekend for the Jackets. That weekend they’ll also take on Cincinnati and St. John’s.
