The Baseball America Top 25 for April 15 has been released. See which Dallas-area college baseball teams have been nationally ranked.
As of April 15, most college baseball teams have played over 30 games, which is a pretty healthy sample size to begin determining which programs are "for real" or not the rest of the way leading up to the College World Series.
Baseball America has released their Top 25 for the week of April 15, with several Texas schools making the list. While the Texas A&M Aggies are holding steady at No. 2 overall with a 28-8 overall record, there are a couple of Dallas/Ft. Worth-area teams that are making strong showings.
The Baylor Bears are coming off of a strong 5-0 week of play, jumping two spots in the rankings from No. 8 to No. 6. They currently hold a 30-7 record and another week like last week could see them climbing yet again.
Further down the list are the Texas Longhorns, holding steady at No. 23 after a 3-1 week. They are currently 20-13 and will need to keep improving on that record to remain in the national Top 25.
Other Texas schools appearing on the list are Rice at No. 7 and Sam Houston State right behind the Longhorns at No. 24.
