Baseball Gaining National Attention



April 3, 2013

Boca Raton, FL - The Florida Atlantic University baseball team is having another strong season, with a season-best seven-game winning streak gaining national recognition for the successful program.

On Monday, the Owls were ranked No. 25 by Baseball America and were selected No. 30 by Collegiate Baseball in the weekly national polls. This marks the second straight season the team has been ranked by Collegiate Baseball.

Last week, FAU earned four victories that should improve the team's postseason resume. The Owls defeated Miami 6-1 on March 27 before sweeping a three-game series from previously nationally ranked South Alabama last weekend.

Coach John McCormack's team has been featured this week in articles in Baseball America and on the Perfect Game website, and was selected as the National Team of the Week by Collegebaseballinsider.com. Meanwhile, local media was on hand as the Owls defeated cross town opponent Lynn University 7-6 on Tuesday for the team's 20th victory of the season.

Now, the first-place baseball team travels to ULM to begin a three-game Sun Belt Conference series on Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m. Live audio and statistics of the games will be available here.

I encourage fans to listen to the games and support the team by being in attendance for the remaining 10 home games - nine of them being important conference games.
