The Diamond Hogs recently began practicing for the upcoming season (in subfreezing temperatures) and they'll open the season ranked in at least one major poll, the Baseball America rankings.
There are eight SEC teams in the rankings: South Carolina (7), Mississippi State (8), LSU (9), Vanderbilt (10), Alabama (21), Florida (23), Texas A&M (24), and Arkansas. So, as usual, the SEC is loaded.
Second-baseman Brian Anderson was also recently named a preseason All-American by Perfect Game, and spoke with RazorVision about the honor as well as the upcoming practices and season:
The season opens February 14th against Appalachian State at Baum Stadium.
