Apps back in poll, back at home



After a one-week absence, Appalachian State University baseball has reentered college baseball’s national rankings at No. 30 in this week’s National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) poll.

Two weeks ago, Appalachian garnered only the second national ranking in program history when it came in at No. 29 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll. At the time, the ranking was believed to be a first at ASU but it was later confirmed that the Mountaineers were also ranked No. 29 in the final Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll of the 1984 regular season.

After falling out of college baseball’s major polls last Monday, the Mountaineers rebounded with a 4-0 week to earn their first-ever inclusion in the 15-year history of the NCBWA’s national rankings.

ETSU at Smith Stadium tonight. Early highlight – All-American Austin Trotman will throw out first pitch.

    How do you add a photo guys, I am sure it is something simple, thanks for the support?

    Yeah we need to keep it rolling, CofC is always a tough foe and are they not ranked this year as well?

    Only four more home games why would you schedule or 12 games at the first of the season and not space them out, we will be on the road for much of the rest of the season, not good when we are 15-0 at home to date, we will see what we are made of when CofC comes to town and we are on the road for a long period of time, keeping my fingers crossed we will not falter?

    rode by the Holmes Center today and saw a big sign on the side that read…Appalachian State Football has NOLIMIT….in the no equal style logo….is this the new slogan or catch phrase for the upcoming season?

    Here is Mel Kiper's latest NFL mock draft… only ESPN Insiders can see it, but he has Brian Quick going 41st overall (9th pick of 2nd round). That's getting pretty high up there. Here's what Kiper has to say about him: "A favorite of mine, Quick has big-time size and can stretch the field. Buffalo lacks a true deep threat."

    The only down side is that the team is the Bills.

    Huge series this weekend. Hopefully we play well and win the series. I'm going to try to make it up for a game.

    And we take game 2! (Is there a new thread about this and my phone isn't updating it?)

    Agreed JMcCray, I'm disappointed there isn't a thread about the CofC series. This one is huge and we have already won the first two. Taking my son to the early Easter service in the morning so we can make the drive up the mountain and get to the game on time tomorrow. These are great days for ASU Baseball, we should all enjoy it.

    If App wins tomorrow, they deserve to be in the top 25.
