NCBWA April 9 Division I Poll

FROM NCBWA RELEASE
DALLAS – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continues its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 15th year with its 2012 weekly surveys. Polls will be circulated from Feb. 20-June 28 following the 66th annual NCAA World Series in Omaha, Neb., at the second-year TD Ameritade Stadium.

Florida State (with coaching legend Mike Martin racking up his 1,700th career win last Sunday at Georgia Tech) has replaced Florida atop the survey for the first time this season. The Gators had held the No. 1 NCBWA ranking in the first eight ’12 polls, including preseason. There now have been two conferences represented in the No. 1 locale.

The poll voters come from 42 college baseball writers and related media persons from throughout the nation. This week’s poll has representation by 11 different conferences among the 291 baseball-playing schools in the 2012 NCAA Division I ranks, and there have been 16 circuits in the surveys this season. Last year there also were 16 different leagues (from 30 in NCAA Division I) among the Top 30 polls. For more information or to join the NCBWA, please go to www.ncbwa.com.
