The second of the preseason polls has been released and while the sites don't agree on the ranking, they both agree the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns belong in the top 20.

The Cajuns were ranked 18th by D1Baseball in their preseason poll released today.  They are also the highest ranked team from a non-power five conference.

LSU (#7), and TCU (#19) are also in the top 25.  The Cajuns will play both teams, along with Texas Tech, Rice, Tulane, Southern Miss, Sam Houston State and Southeastern Louisiana, among others on the 2016 schedule.

Coastal Carolina, who joins the Sun Belt in 2017, is ranked 24th.

Yesterday, D1Baseball named infielder Stefan Trosclair and reliever Dylan Moore as preseason third team All-Americans.

The Cajuns will be trying to reach their fourth straight regional and third straight super-regional.  They open the season February 19th against Sam Houston State in the first of a three game series at M. L. "Tigue" Moore Field.
