Jan. 24, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss baseball team continued to find itself in the national spotlight heading into the 2013 season as the Rebels pulled in their highest preseason ranking of the early polls when Baseball America tabbed the squad as the No. 13 team in the nation on Thursday.
The preseason ranking marks the 10th time the Rebels have been ranked in the preseason in the Mike Bianco era and the ninth time in the last 10 seasons. Collegiate Baseball newspaper also had Ole Miss ranked in the top 25 when the publication released its preseason rankings back in December, as did Perfect Game earlier this week.
Junior right-hander Bobby Wahl also pulled in individual rankings from both baseball organizations when they released their preseason All-America teams. Collegiate Baseball tabbed Wahl as a preseason All-American in December, while Perfect Game released its preseason All-America team on Monday.
The Rebels are coming off a season in which the squad posted a 37-26 record and advanced to the championship game of an NCAA Regional for the sixth time in the last eight seasons. It also marks the 10th NCAA Tournament appearance for Ole Miss in the Mike Bianco era and 17th NCAA Tournament appearance all-time.
Ole Miss posted several big wins on the season and claimed seven weekend series, including three series sweeps. The Rebels swept UNC-Wilmington, Houston and Tennessee while also picking up series wins over Miami (Ohio), No. 1 Florida, No. 15 Arkansas and posted series splits on the road at No. 10 TCU and No. 22 Louisville.
The Rebels open the 2013 season on February 15 with the first game of a three-game series against No. 14 TCU at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field, setting up for an exciting weekend of college baseball as the two nationally-ranked teams face off for the third time in the last two seasons.
Ole Miss and TCU opened the 2012 season in Texas before the Rebels ended the 2012 season against the Horned Frogs in the NCAA Regional in College Station, Texas. Ole Miss defeated TCU in the opening game of the weekend regional before falling to the Horned Frogs in the Regional Championship Game.
