Baseball season is still several weeks away but today the UofL program received a lot of love. The Cardinals were pre ranked second in the nation by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Preseason Poll. Only Florida is pre ranked higher.

The Cardinals return an experienced roster from last year’s squad which made it to the Super Regionals before being eliminated by Cal State Fullerton. That includes the top two starters in senior righty Kyle Funkhouser and sophomore lefty Brendan McKay.

As far as position players are concerned, Louisville brings back seven players including All-American outfielder Corey Ray, and infielder Nick Solak.

The season starts February 19-21 with a three game series at home against SIU-Edwardsville.
