College Baseball Poll - Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Monday (April 9, 2001)

STANFORD NO. 1 IN COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER (www.baseballnews.com) POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — Stanford University (27-7) has been ranked No. 1 in the latest Collegiate Baseball newspaper NCAA Division I baseball poll. The Cardinal, which has won 13 of their last 15 games, knocked off UCLA two of three games over the past weekend. Stanford also sits on top of the Pac-10 Conference with a 7-2 record.

The Cardinal has a superb team ERA of 2.76. As a staff, Stanford pitchers have a better than 2:1 strikeout to walk ratio (267 strikeouts and 111 walks). The pitching staff has only allowed 13 homers in 34 games. Defense has been superb all season. In the first NCAA national statistics released last week, the Cardinal ranked first in the nation with a .980 team fielding percentage.

Rice, ranked No. 1 in the previous poll, posted a 2-3 week and fell from first to eighth. Losses were to Sam Houston St. and twice to San Jose St. with wins against Texas A&M and San Jose St.

POLL NOTES: Several teams have been red hot. Cal. St. Fullerton continues to roll with eight straight wins and victories in 14 of its last 16 contests. Winthrop has won 12 straight. Florida is back in the poll this week after picking up 14 consecutive wins. Oral Roberts has also been superb with 10 straight wins. Teams which have struggled include Clemson (0-4 last week), The Citadel (1-3), Arizona State (7 losses in last 10 games) and Rutgers (3-3).

The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll is the oldest college baseball poll. Its birth took place during the 1957 college baseball season.
