DLS baseball earns national ranking

As engrossing as the North Coast Section basketball (and soccer) tournament can be, let’s turn our attention to baseball for a moment.

Besides, how can one be enjoying the recent nice stretch of weather and NOT be thinking about baseball? It’s un-American. I’m stocked up on sunflower seeds and ready to start hitting the local diamonds. Who’s with me?

In the meantime, StudentSports.com released it’s preseason Fab 50 national rankings and De La Salle checked in at No. 25. The Spartans are loaded this season with seven players committed to Division I programs, including 2B Nathan Carter (Air Force) and OF Tillman Pugh (Arizona State).

Believe it or not, De La Salle didn’t even come in as the highest ranked Bay Area team. Bellarmine Prep-San Jose will begin the season ranked No. 13.
