Northern Sun D2 College Baseball Poll – 4/28/09

Northern Sun D2 Poll1

Each week, the Northern Sun Baseball Blog combines the 3 primary Division 2 College Baseball Poll’s into 1 composite ranking.

There’s a new unanimous #1 team in D2 college baseball – it’s Barry (Miami Shores, FL).  The Buccaneers beat Rollins and then took 2 of 3 from Tampa.  They are led by a potent offensive attack as they are hitting .349 as a team.  Their first baseman, Yudelmis Hernandez, has broken the school record with 20 home runs and catcher, Yan Gomez, has 18 homers while breaking the school records for RBI’s and Total Bases in a season.  With all of the home runs they’ve broken the NCAA D2 team record for Grand Slams in a season with 10. 

Barry took over from Southern Arkansas who had held the top spot the past 2 weeks.  The Muleriders lost 2 of 3 to Delta State over the weekend which helped Delta move up 7 spots in the rankings. 

South Carolina – Aiken made a big move up this week going from #14 to #6.  Catawba College made an impressive debut in the poll as they were ranked in all 3 polls for the first time to move from unranked to a solid #19. 

Emporia State took a tumble from #2 to #7 and Mesa State was another previous top 5 team to move the wrong way as they lost 4 games last week to drop from #4 to a tie for #9. 

The Northern Sun Conference’s Wayne State (NE) moved up another spot to get to #20.  Minnesota State also received votes in 2 of the 3 polls but finished just outside of the top 30 in 33rd place.

    Who does the Ping Poll … that they know about Chicken Days in Wayne … must be someone from Omaha …. who doesn’t like WSC.

    Glad they ranked someone from the NSIC … Good for you Mankato.

    Hey John – thanks as always for checking in. That said, you do know that they don’t like being called Mankato anymore 🙂

    Got a scolding from the SID for that one when I started the blog.

    Congrats on the split – you look to be in good position to take the regular season crown and sew up an At Large bid at the very least.

      LOL – you do know I was just teasing about Mankato – when I grew up in Rochester it seemed like 1/4 of my graduating class went to Mankato State so they’ll always be “Mankato” to me.
