Earlier, fans of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns baseball team were pleased to see the Cajuns ranked 23rd in the preseason by Collegiate Baseball.

If that made them happy, this will make them downright ecstatic.

Louisiana is ranked #14 by Baseball America.

The Cajuns ranking is higher than storied programs like Rice, North Carolina, Miami, Texas, Texas A&M and Florida.

The Cajuns returrn eight of nine starters offensively and their starting weekend rotation from 2013, when they went 43-20 and made it to the finals of the Baton Rouge regional.

Virginia is ranked #! in the poll.  Four Southeastern Conference schools are ranked 7-10:  South Carolina, Mississippi State, LSU and Vanderbilt.
