The College Baseball Blog would like to announce that Mark Rafferty has been promoted to the Assistant Editor role. Mark came to our site late in the season where he covered the Fullerton Regional and Super Regionals. He has decided to accept my offer to become the Assistant Editor after some intense contract negotations. This is big news for our site as it will help out with our coverage when I am working or not available to make some changes to the site. He can be contacted by clicking here or on his name in the writers section.
We added a poll on the left side of the page. The questions will change every few days so come by often and vote in the polls.
We are seeing a ton of users for the NCAA Tourney but not seeing any comments. Please stop by and comment on some of the great coverage of the Regionals and the upcoming Super Regionals. Registration is free and all comments are much appreciated.

We are currently looking to expand our roster of writers as I can’t cover the entire nation on my own. We are looking for people that can commit to writing an occasional article about College Baseball, a conference preview for the upcoming weekend, or even just doing a weekend recap of conference action. If you can commit to doing this feel free to contact me for more information by clicking here.

The biggest issue that has been discussed during the offseason has been the uniform start date which is February 1st for the first organized team practice and February 22nd for the first game for all Division 1 programs (excluding Hawaii).
