Vanderbilt tabbed preseason No. 2 by Collegiate Baseball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt received 495 points and enters its 2020 campaign ranked No. 2 in Collegiate Baseball’s preseason poll, the publication announced Monday.

The Commodores, who were picked to finish second by the publication a season ago, are among five Southeastern Conference programs in the top nine. Louisville is ranked No. 1 in the poll – the Commodores and Cardinals will meet May 5 at Hawkins Field.

Vanderbilt has been ranked inside the top 10 in 10 consecutive seasons. During that stretch, the Commodores have captured two national titles and advanced to the College World Series four times.

The Dores will play a combined 18 games against preseason top-25 teams including three-game series against No. 6 Mississippi State, No. 7 Georgia, No. 11 LSU and No. 14 Florida. South Alabama, who Vanderbilt opens home play against Feb. 18-19, is ranked No. 23.
