    Hey Tony and Ben, What’s up with Baseball and Softball Rankings and Polls? Can you please add them to these Blogs so we can get some feedback going on?

    Yeah, I’ll try to get baseball up starting next week. The initial poll was done late last week, so I never had a chance. Besides, next week’s should be a little more accurate anyway.
