Clemson, SC -

Clemson is ranked #10 in Baseball America’s 2011 preseason poll, released on Thursday. Florida is atop the Baseball America poll, followed by #2 UCLA, #3 TCU, #4 Vanderbilt, and #5 Oklahoma. Other ACC teams ranked in the top 25 include #12 Florida State, #15 Virginia, and #24 Miami (FL). It marks the 23rd consecutive season that Clemson has earned a preseason top-25 ranking by one of the three major polls.



The Tigers had a 45-25 overall record and 18-12 ACC regular-season mark in 2010. Clemson won the ACC Atlantic Division title before capturing championships in the Auburn Regional and Clemson Super Regional. The Tigers went 2-2 in the College World Series and finished tied for third in the nation.


Clemson returns 20 lettermen, including preseason All-Americans John Hinson (3B), Brad Miller (SS), and Jeff Schaus (OF). The Tigers will open the 2011 season on February 18 against Eastern Michigan at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.


The staff of Baseball America determines the Top 25 rankings. Last year's records do not include ties.
