DALLAS, Texas – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continued its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 11th year with its 2010 weekly surveys. This season’s polls have been circulated from Feb. 23-June 29/30 following the NCAA World Series in Omaha, Neb. This is the final poll of the year and ’10 after South Carolina of the Southeastern Conference won its first NCAA baseball championship on June 29 by downing UCLA 2-1 in 11 innings.

The poll voters come from 40 college baseball writers and related media persons from throughout the nation. The final poll has representation by 10 different conferences among the 302 baseball-playing schools in the
2009 NCAA Division I ranks, and five different schools have held down the No. 1 position. There have been 16 separate leagues among the Top 30 in ’10 poll, and four different schools – (chronologically) Texas, LSU,
Virginia, and Arizona State – held down the No. 1 position in the NCBWA 2010 polls. For more information or to join the NCBWA, please go to www.ncbwa.com.
